“Issa” Haiku Series
The new “Issa” cards feature small blockprints by Yoshiko Yamamoto that are accompanied by haiku poems by Kobayashi Issa (1763–1828). One of Japan’s most popular poets, Issa used the dialects of the mountain villages where he lived to write his whimsical poems. His works had a childlike simplicity and celebrated the ordinariness and the occasional sacredness in daily life, always finding delight in the little creatures of this world.
Founded by Bruce Smith & Yoshiko Yamamoto, The Arts & Crafts Press is a small fine press producing note cards, books, and block prints by letterpress on antique printing presses.
