Animals fight back
The Animals’ Vegan Manifestoby Sue Coe
Or Books, £14
This book of 115 black-and-white woodcut illustrations and few words carries an affecting, forceful message. The Animals’ Vegan Manifesto by Sue Coe (Or Books, £14/$17) portrays the way animals live innocent lives in tune with the rhythms of nature, while humans so often go against them in blind pursuit of self-gratification and with an inflated sense of importance that leaves little room for empathy with the universe. The question that shouts from the pages of this book is: how can human beings have so little respect for the animal kingdom with which
they share this world?
