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 published in partnership with/distributed by Prototype; the Dutch edition is published by PoëzieCentrum.
