Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology, published in 1915, comprised epitaphs for the community of a fictional small American town. In this supersaurine collaboration, J.T. Welsch and Dom&Ink provide the same service for some of the real life prehistoric residents of Hell Creek, Montana – including Tyrannosaurus rex, his attorney Judge Anklyosaurus, the radical Stygimoloch spinifer, and convicted cop killer Dromaeosaurus albertensis. Spiky, razor-toothed, densely plated poems spill a bleak saga, fringed with savagely assured inks and thunderous colour, as the predators and lovers of Hell Creek come up against their individual and collective doom.

“A truly fanciful poetic adaptation encompassing some of the most famous characters in palaeontological history.”

Dr. Lowell Dingus (American Museum of Natural History), author of Hell Creek, Montana: America’s Key to the Prehistoric Past.
