From the publisher

Little Dead Rabbit is a collaboration between poet Astrid Alben and visual artist and designer Zigmunds Lapsa, a book-length poem with die-cut stencil images throughout.

During the lockdown of 2020/21, Alben and Lapsa worked closely together on this book-length poem that is part adult fairy-tale, part concrete poem about a little dead rabbit the poet found on the verge of a road. Ostensibly a poem about death, the small corpse is equally a meditation on healing and joy.

Little Dead Rabbit is an innovative, attractive and moving piece of work. Its poignantly spare writing peeps out on top of (and under) the exquisite and delicate cut-out art. It’s incredibly original.’
