Inspired by the poetry of Ki No Tadama, an ancient Japanese poet (966-999). The maple burl wood cover, earth tone papers, and various inks reflect the topic of nature contained in each of the six poems. The simplicity of the poetry is matched with two lettering styles. The poems are lettered in Uncials, a lovely yet unadorned style. The names of the poets are lettered in a script designed just for this book.
