Beth Moon Abbeville Press

You heard that right. The New York pho­tog­ra­pher Moon has paired 52 gor­geous black-and-white por­traits of her­itage-breed chick­ens with lit­er­ary ex­cerpts. The beady-eyed gazes of ev­ery last one of the birds are fixed on Moon’s lens. Con­sider the Sil­ver Phoenix fe­male paired with this from Vir­ginia Woolf’s Night and Day: “I’ve done my best to see you as you are, with­out any of this damned ro­man­tic non­sense.”
