Haiku Art and Poetry Set 20 Japanese Cards comprises 20 Japanese notecards with soft white envelopes in a highly decorative gift box. Printed on high-quality 250 gsm card stock in full colour on recycled paper with soy based ink and left blank for your own special message. The purest of poems, a haiku contains in its 17 syllables a seasonal allusion as well as a distinct pause or shift. Cherry blossoms and swallows mean spring; red maple leaves and deer convey autumn. Nature and its ephemeral beauty, this is haiku. Japanese woodblock artists have often drawn their water from the same wells of creativity used by haiku poets. A pleasure boat on a moonlit lake, a dozing bird beside a turning leaf, it should surprise no one that Basho, greatest of haiku poets, was an accomplished painter. Paired here are haikus old and new, with stunning Japanese prints from the mid-19th and mid-20th centuries. The Haiku Art and Poetry Set 20 Japanese Cards contains five each of the following stylish notecards;
Card size: 17cm x 12cm / 7 x 5 inches Box size: 19cm x 13.5cm x 4cm / 7.5 x 5.25 x 1.5 inches

FREE Japanese style Gift-Wrapping!
In Japan the presentation of your gift is almost as important as the gift itself so in true Japanese style we can offer you a FREE gift-wrapping service! We wrap your gifts using a special Japanese textured paper to which we then affix either a small origami crane bird (which represents love and peace in Japan) or a mizuhiki (coloured wire) motif.
If you would like your order gift-wrapped please remember to select the Gift-Wrapping option from the drop down box on the product page when placing your order, if you do not select this option we will assume that you do not require gift-wrapping.
