Haiku Box


Traditional Haiku poetry refers to the rhythms of the natural world, quite often making explicit reference to the four seasons. Each wall of this box has a small book with Haiku poems for each season.

The text is laserprint on onionskin bond pastepaper. On some copies, the lid is adorned with flat metal beads; the box is handstamped and embossed.
