Simply Haiku: An E-Journal of Haiku and Related Forms
Jim Kacian, "Looking and Seeing: How Haiga Works."
In this presentation, Jim Kacian takes us on a visual and intellectual excursion through the world of the traditional and modern forms of haiga. Kacian, who needs no introduction to the haiku world, presents numerous examples representing the full range of traditional to modern haiga. It is based on slide presentations that Jim has given in a variety of places.
We are reprinting his presentation in Simply Haiku because we feel that it is one of those major contributions that should be widely available to the haiku community. We would like to express our thanks to our friends at Haigaonline for allowing us to reprint this feature.
The pages are set in sequence. If you don't wish to make your way through the essay in one reading, simply bookmark where you are and then return to the bookmark to pick up and continue.
