The New Directions Anthology of Classical Chinese Poetry (2004), edited by Eliot Weinberger.

The characters are 新日日新 xīn rì rì xīn, roughly “new day day new” in Chinese (I might be missing some poetic reference). The calligraphy is taken from Ezra Pound’s Cantos (perhaps done by Pound himself?), and is among the worst calligraphy I’ve ever seen.
