Marian Poyck is a Dutch haiku poet, but her brief collection Haiku (self-published, no date) is in English. The book is a masterpiece of design, a single sheet of paper folded and cut into a miniature collection, with an attractive chemise and a handsome emboss on the title page. The poems are keenly observed and incisively wrought, making for a very pleasing ensemble.
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.
