Il Giappone in controluce

Il Giappone in controluce

Watercolours, haiku and tanka: three souls, one spirit

Watercolours, haiku and tanka: three souls, one spirit.

This precious book dedicated to Japan is a collection of watercolours, haiku (short poems of seventeen syllables) and tanka (poems of thirty-one syllables): poetic snapshots of great charm and inspiration, where writing and painting are mixed together with originality and refinement.

Haiku and tanka – strictly without punctuation – are accompanied by watercolour paintings by the Author. Verses and brushstrokes blend harmoniously: poetry allows us to grasp – in a single glance – the immediate relationship with the beauty and magic of Japan, while painting concentrates in itself all the power of enchantment and of the world around us.
