Blurb: Co-Jinn is a short illustrated book in which the author’s 50 haikus are paired with imagery from 50 different artists to create a wonderful shared resonance. He has chosen a loose, non-traditional approach to the haiku, to allow it to breathe in the cadences of the English language (which are different from Japanese). The topics, like the artwork, are diverse: death, sexuality, joy, the commonplace, humor, the seasons and more. The selected images are stunning and varied, some quite quirky. In essence, Co-Jinn is an easy reading picture book but also a refined work of Quick Lit.
