Poetic Obituaries: [Toyo Shibata] first anthology,

Kujikenaide (Don't Lose Heart), was originally self-published in 2009 and won praise for its sense of humour and forward-looking attitude.

The volume was reissued in 2010 by the major Japanese publishing house Asaka Shinsha, with new artwork and additional verses to make a total of 42 poems.
