Creatures in an Alphabet by Djuna Barnes

Creatures in an Alphabet by Djuna Barnes. 1982 Dial Press, first printing. Barnes was an author and illustrator. She is best known for her modernist novel Nightwood, a 1936 lesbian classic, though she published little afterward due to alcoholism. Creatures was her last work, and was initially conceived as a bestiary for children, although an adult may appreciate it more. 

Condition: Jacket in good+ condition, some browning, book in VG condition with inscription on end paper.

"When hovering, the Hummingbird

Is always going home (it's said).

By flying in a single spot

It's striving fast to think it's not."
