Cover Art

With permissions, I edited the first Gallery of Cover Art at The Haiku Foundation.  Thank you to Dave Russo for his work to publish this gallery (2016).  The covers in the gallery are from chapbooks, books, and journals.

One of the covers is Family Farm: Haiku for a Place of Moons, by Carol Purington.  Illustrations by Shirley L. Horn.   You can learn more at Carol’s poetry page at Woodslawn Farm.
