The Haiku 100


Product Details

This historic little book was published initially in 1992 and ran to six prints. it sold more than 10,000 copies making it the biggest selling book of English language haiku in the UK. it has been out of print for many years but is now published in a new format with every one of the 100 haiku intact. The Haiku 100 proved a watershed for IRON press, for the (then) recently formed British Haiku Society and for the haiku form itself in these islands.

IRON press is delighted to bring it back into circulation. Much has developed as regards western haiku and its ancillary forms since 1992 and this is reflected in the wide diversity of titles currently available, not only of haiku, but linked forms such as senryu, haibun and tanka. Most of which has happened since the original publication of this book which was then edited by Peter Mortimer, James Kirkup (now deceased) and David Cobb.
