In Animal Farm, the barnyard denizens rebel against their subjugation. Their new democratic society slowly erodes, however, under the consolidation of power in the hands (hooves?) of the pigs, and the animals find themselves once again hamstrung by their authoritarian leaders.

Stanford University historian Peter Stansky writes in his introduction, “It is in so many ways a despairing book, but it has such compassion and empathy. In the end, there is still a glimmer that possibly some day we might create a better and more equal society.”

Jonathan Hammer’s whimsically gruesome illustrations show a variety of anthropomorphized organs and cuts of meat.
