About This Book

Brian Karas has always been moved and inspired by the haiku poetry of Issa, whose work is taught in schools and loved by children around the world. Here Karas has selected 22 of his favorite poems to tell the story of a year in the life of a family -- a year in which they will experience the loss of their beloved grandfather, and also the renewal that comes from healing after loss. With stunning mixed media artwork that represents a major breakout for this acclaimed artist, TODAY AND TODAY offers an authentic, reassuring look at life's many cycles -- and the small miracles that occur each day.

A kite carried by a spring breeze...a starry summer night...Small moments like these are beautifully celebrated in this collection of haiku by the beloved haiku master Issa. Selected by gifted illustrator G. Brian Karas to tell of an ordinary, extraordinary year in the life of one family, these haiku bring to light the preciousness of this moment, and the wonder of today.

Award-winning artist G. Brian Karas's remarkable mixed-media illustrations capture the profound effect of Issa's seemingly simple haiku. The inspired result is a treasure to share and ponder, as it opens our hearts to the unique wonders of today..and all the todays to come.
