Calambac Grafica

The illustrated poems published in the Calambac Grafica series are the publishing house's flagship. Starting with the expressionist poetry of Hugo Ball, the edition now includes an exquisite haiku series. Female poets such as Sugita Hisajo and poets such as Masaoka Shiki, Yosa Buson and Kobayashi Issa, among others, can be found here. The publisher's typical creative approach of interpreting each verse graphically is known as graphic lyric or graphic lyric poetry.
