Among These Blues, a tiny letterpress book of haiku by Crystal Simone Smith, is available from the author.
From the book description: “Among These Blues is a limited-edition leaflet of haiku handmade by Ross Press & Bindery. The illustrations were created by Nicolette Ross. It includes ten haiku written about the city of Durham, North Carolina, some previously published in haiku journals. One hundred books were designed, screen printed, and numbered.”
Some haiku from the book:
in the midst of killings the flowers return
foreclosure the garden buddha belly up
among these summer blues ... a neon-tailed gecko
Among These Blues was self-published in 2023. It was one of several books Crystal published in 2023. See Haiku at the MET and Two New Books by Crystal Simone Smith.
