For the contributers Iron Press was incredibly generous, as they gave each of us three copies.  My mother-in-law received her copy yesterday from my wife, and was very impressed by the writing.

It was interesting to observe her choices as she isn't caught up in fifth-liners (it's my name for the fifth line where the author's names appear) and would read out haiku that were really good, by names I recognised (when I asked) but who rarely publish widely.

Also the layout is revolutionary, and perfect for new readers to haiku, as well as established readers of haiku.  Basically it's user friendly across a wider spectrum, and will help address the confusion over gimmicky verse posing as haiku to boost sales aka the Cat haiku books out there etc...



The Humours of Haiku
edited by David Cobb

    £7.00
    Publication date: September 2012
    76 pages A6 page size
    ISBN 978-0-9565725-4-7

For anyone who thinks haiku arouse only a very narrow range of emotions, this anthology - with 240 haiku by over 100 poets - is a challenge to think again.

Sadness, anger, jealousy, pity, compassion, regret and joy are just some of the emotions covered, and all within the confines of the small three line poems - confines that can often prove liberating to the practitioners of this increasingly popular literary form.

David Cobb uses a great editorial method so worth getting the anthology for that reason alone.

So Inpress Books is the international seller:
http://inpressbooks.co.uk/products/the-humours-of-haiku

When you go to the cart you can put in USA and applicable State.

The current price is £7.00 GBP.
