Publishing my poems as a web-based book

2019/12/16

I started writing poems (mostly in Mandarin) intermittently in 2013. Initially I put them on Blogger; I then moved them into this site in 2017. However, since they were quite different from everything else on this site (not to mention in a different language), and since I don't really have a category / tag system that works well, I effectively removed all mentions to them on this site. They were still hosted here, but there were no links in any of the main pages.

Last week I finally got around to doing something about it. I've packaged them into a poem collection at https://barren-moon.kisaragi-hiu.com, although it's still Mandarin only.

The book is built with Pollen, presented with CSS Grid, with styles inspired by Practical Typography (specifically the link styles). It should look fine on most screen sizes, and I plan to make a PDF version to sell on Booth.
