Haiku Paining (Great Japanese Art) by Leon M Zolbrod

$65.00

Haiku is not simply a type of poetry but a way of looking at the world, a philosophy of life. This extra-large book has 48 pages of dazzling and delightful haiku-influenced paintings. It contains a nice selection of paintings by Yosa Buson, the Haiku master, and a largely unheralded Haiga painter. Haiga by Basho are also included. Haiga is a branch of Haikai that has to been extensively explored in the West. There have been a few books of modern western Haiga, but books on Japanese traditional Haiga are scarce. This book was considered groundbreaking in its subject matter, being the first in the English language to deal with Haiku painting. The main text gives a concise general discussion of Haiku poetry, the development of Haiku painting, the schools and artists, and the popular culture that supported them. 

Excellent, Like New condition.
