The first haiga e-zine in history, Haigaonline ('HAIGAOnline: A Journal of Poetry and Painting' as it was then called) was founded by Jeanne Emrich. The first issue was published in May 1998 and so (although our numbering of issues begins with the editorship of an'ya in 2002) we are now completing our tenth year of publication.

Haigaonline's web pages are made using Adobe Dreamweaver, Flash and Photoshop for Mac OSX. The image pages are created through JALbum.

For the images in the background wallpapers and the flash banner on the index page, I used Photoshop to adapt Frank H. Round's illustrations from W.R. Dyles' Genus Iris (1913). The book has been reprinted in facsimile by Dover Press; scans of the plates are online at
