You'll be hard-pressed to keep a straight face while leafing through these stunning black-and-white photographs of fifty-two heritage-breed chickens paired with—and somehow perfectly capturing the mood of—an excerpt from classic literature. A martial Spanish White Face is poised to sing the praises of the great heroes remembered in Beowulf. An extravagantly coiffed Buff-Laced Polish invokes the fantastical words of Through the Looking-Glass. As for the eagle-eyed gal flanking the words of Pride and Prejudice…well, let's just say Mrs. Bennet's feathers are easily ruffled. A foreword by Isabella Rossellini and essays by chicken-keeper Melissa Caughey and photo critic/scholar Collier Brown round out photographer Beth Moon's singular portfolio, which makes a quirky yet heartwarming gift.
