Premised on the idea that one doesn’t need to be a professional poet to enjoy it, Haiku and Senryu will inform you on why poets and non-poets alike love the genre; how to read them for maximum enjoyment; where they came from; how to organize them; and how to get them into print and other people’s heads. Whether a newbie or a seasoned veteran, you’re sure to come away with a deeper appreciation of the genre. And it’s also a considerable anthology of some of the best English-language haiku to be found.

the-haiku-foundation-slipping-through-water-2

Schwerelos Gleiten / Slipping Through Water by Ruth Franke

Schwerelos Gleiten / Slipping Through Water is the definitive volume of haikai produced by German poet and translator Ruth Franke. It is comprised of haibun interspersed with freestanding haiku, and, typically, involves the work of several artists for its effect. Celia Brown and David Cobb have translated the texts; Reinhard Stangl has provided a series of evocative paintings; Jim Kacian offers a suggestive introduction; and the publisher Wiesenberg Verlag has crafted a consummate volume of exquisite stocks, tasteful fonts and rich though muted colors to realize the poet’s vision. Franke’s own cosmopolitan perspective and gentle, humanist sensibility are well on display in this testament to one of Germany’s first haibun voices. This is a gift you will want to savor. Limited supply.

Publisher: Atelier Æ



About the Artist:

Ellen Peckham is one of the most versatile and awarded artists ever to have turned her attentions to the demands of haiga, and her work in chine collé is unique in both Eastern and Western art history. She has read, published and exhibited in the U.S., Europe, and Latin America. As a result of an exhibition at Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano (ICPNA) in Lima, Peru in 2009 and of readings of her work in Spanish, her bi-lingual book, Recording Loss/Registro de una Perdida, was published there and introduced at the 2010 International Feria de Libros. She frequently uses both art forms in a single work, the text decorating and explicating and the image illuminating. From March 2 to April 14, 2012, the many facets of her work were exhibited at the Dalet Gallery in Philadelphia. A related illustrated biography, Continuum (actually in the form of collage), was published at that time. Her archives of drafts, edits and art are collected at the Harry Ransom Center for the Humanities at the University of Texas at Austin and a 7-minute visual biography, Parallel Vocabularies, is available on DVD and on her website.
