Haiku: poetry and silk screening


Haiku_490bis.jpg Haiku is a form of poetry from Japan: 3 verses with 5, 7 and 5 syllables, with no title. A great synthesis of idea and image. Fleeting words, quickly sketched images of nature, visions and paradoxes expressed by the haijin (the poet). Haiku does not describe, does not explain, it simply happens.

The haiku will be used by an artist to create silkscreen decorations for Moleskine notebooks. There are different frames, colors and designs from which to choose.

The first event takes place from November 25 to 27, inside the High Tech in Milan, then moving on to Selfridges in London (December 2-4) and Karstadt in Munich (December 9-11).
