In this collection of haiku by Steven D. Brewer, the first haiku establishes the theme: pressed flowers. The book contains 210 of Brewer's haiku that appear in their original Esperanto with English translation paired with delicate, black-and-white images of dried, pressed flowers. The haiku appeared originally at twitter.com/limako during 2011 and 2012 and were presented in a single line, but have been organized for publication into three lines of 5-7-5 syllables. The ellipsis represents the strong break and indicates where the cutting word (or kigo) would be placed if they were in Japanese. A forward, by HIROTAKA Masaaki (Vastalto) invites readers to enjoy the "charming pieces" of the collection.
