Matsuo Basho is a website designed to highlight the works of one of the most famous Japanese Poets Matsu Basho. Basho was a traveling poet who had a tremendous influence on modern haiku, both in format a prose. Although remained poor most of his life, has been immortalized due to his influence on Japanese poetry. Haiku is a very popular form of poetry from Japanese culture, which has a 575 syllabic structure. I pulled from Japanese bookbinding as well as sumi-e to develop a visual style that emulated traditional Japanese design but also modernized through fluid use of visually interesting typography.
