Haiku Princess: Poems in Ascending Order of Profanity

Haiku Princess: A timeless gift book, pretty and profane.

Traditional haiku – at least the most interesting of the genre – include the “volta,” or “turn,” a rhetorical shift or dramatic change in thought or emotion. Pairing modern, slantwise thoughts with Victorian images, Haiku Princess expands on the idea of the “volta” of a poem to include a visual layer… because it just seemed right.

Quotes from Amazon reviewers:

“This work is not appropriate for children. Or teenagers. Or adults. Or anybody.”

“A beautiful punch in the mouth.”

“The illustrations are beautiful and the haikus are irreverent. Job well done.”
