The art in haiga lies not so much in having an attractive image to accompany a haiku but rather in the amplification of meaning that text and image bring to each other when juxtaposed. And when more than one author or artist is involved, the work has a synergy of richness and depth.

The three collaborative pieces we have for you this time are actually not single haiga but collaborative series. They're each quite different, but in each of them it's the linking and sequencing of images is important and the authors have explored ways of giving them unity through a slideshow display.
