Yanty's Butterfly is a haiku anthology dedicated to Yanty Tjiam (1981-2015), and her family.

In honor of Yanty, 20 poets from Canada, the U.K., Germany, Persia/Iran, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, South Africa, Taiwan, the Philippines, and the U.S. have come together to create this anthology.

This anthology consists of over 600 poems, spanning the variety of haiku forms and also includes tanka, and haibun.

In the editor's note, Jacob Salzer further describes the inherent value, and significance of this anthology:

"As we lost a loved one, Yanty Tjiam, she went through a metamorphosis of her own, and in the process, she transformed us as well ...[Yanty's Butterfly] is a celebration of her life, and her haiku. It is also a celebration of our work in this genre, and the power of haiku to connect people, across countries, across boundaries, around the world."

All proceeds from this book will be donated to Yanty's family, and to two charity organizations: The Hunger Project, and ActionAid.
