Montage: The Book
The Haiku Foundation is pleased to announce the release of its first publication, Montage: The Book.
Based on Allan Burns’ highly acclaimed series on the Foundation website, Montage: The Book gathers all 43 of the weekly galleries, some in revised form, between covers. It also adds 10 new galleries, featuring 30 new poets and 210 new poems, to offer a year’s worth of haiku reading (52 weeks and a gallery for New Year’s Day). The compilation thus comprises 1113 poems—the largest anthology of English-language haiku ever assembled!
An insightful and focused foreword is provided by Peggy Willis Lyles, and the cover design and interior graphics have been created by Ron Moss. Book design, preparation and printing have been overseen by Red Moon Press. We’re sure this is a volume every haiku reader, writer or lover will want in their library. And here’s the odd thing: it’s not for sale!
The only way you can get a copy of this fabulous anthology is by donating $50 or more to The Haiku Foundation. The work of all those listed above—Burns, Lyles, Moss, Red Moon Press—has been donated to the advancement of the Foundation, to create an incentive premium unique to us.
Here’s how to get your copy:
If you’ve already donated $50 or more to The Haiku Foundation in 2010—you need do nothing. A copy of Montage: The Book will be sent to you automatically.
If you’ve already donated to The Haiku Foundation in 2010 in an amount less than $50—you may send an additional payment to bring your total donation amount to $50 or more, and so receive a copy of Montage: The Book.
If you’ve not already donated to The Haiku Foundation in 2010—any donations accruing to $50 or more received in calendar year 2010 entitle you to a copy of Montage: The Book.
If you require multiple copies—please contact The Haiku Foundation.
Note: If you receive a copy of Montage: The Book in exchange for your donation to The Haiku Foundation, and then claim your donation against your 2010 Federal Income Tax, you must deduct $10 from your donation (the nominal cost of the premium to the Foundation). You may choose not to receive a book (and thus claim your entire donation) if that is your preference.
