Bikers Ascend

Jeanne Emrich painted this watercolour for a tan-renga that she and I did for the publication of Berries and Cream: Contemporary Haiga in North America, my interview with her on the art of haiga (Foster City, California: Press Here, 2000, introduced by Stephen Addiss). We had several hundred of these haiga printed up on large cards, and gave them away with orders of the book.       +
