I was pleasantly surprised to find a few good quality chapbooks available electronically for free! With a little know how, it isn't difficult or terribly expensive to make a hard copy for your library.

My hope is that others will know of links to more chapbooks available for free. If you know of any, please add them!

I'll begin with a list of links to the ones I have found:

Haiku Year by Will Hindermarch

One Haiku a Page by Anthony Souls

Thinking in Haiku by Anthony Souls

To print a simple chapbook, open the PDF in Acrobat and print. In the print dialog box, select "Page Scaling: Booklet Printing" and then print back sides only and reverse order. Then print Front sides onto the backs, make sure to deselect "Reverse Order" so the pages print in the correct order. Then print the first page onto card stock, staple in the middle, fold and trim for an effective saddle stitched book.

On a side note, if anyone has haiku that they would like to release as a free chapbook and don't know how to get them into a printable format, please contact me. I can help you lay them out and make a PDF that can be uploaded and shared. If you offer your books for free, then (time permitting) my work will also be free.
