Sound of Hungry Animals

Sound of Hungry Animals cries out in a singular voice about the mysteries of love, oppression, and the beast that is survival. Moritz’s surrealist vision is amplified in the grotesque drawings of Rudolf Kurz that have been especially commissioned for this limited edition of 125 chapbooks. The images are letterpress printed on plates that are hand-placed, the cover is letterpress printed on hand-made paper, and the interior text is printed offset on bright white paper. Hand-sewn with black thread. Dream-images are rendered breathtakingly in both word and ink. A very unique collection by the winner of the prestigious Griffin Poetry Prize.

“Sound of Hungry Animals is a well-measured collection that showcases A. F. Moritz’s considerable talents as a poet. As a meditation, it manages to present its preoccupations with both compression and elegance.”  Ben Meyerson
