Johannes S.H. Bjerg, 19 Gestures and Their Corresponding Words

Timglaset is proud to present 19 Gestures and Their Corresponding Words by Danish writer and artist Johannes S.H. Bjerg. In this beautiful book Bjerg, inventor of the parallell haiku, combine gestural Indian ink drawings with one line haiku poems. Alternately lyrical, perplexing and hilarious these haiku demonstrate Bjerg’s mastery of the form and its relevance as a contemporary mode of expression.

22 pages, printed in black & white with a grey cardboard cover. Handsewn with Japanese four-hole binding in waxed, black linen thread. Edition of 49 numbered copies of which 29 are for sale.
