Format: Hardcover
A fascinating and beautifully presented look at the art of Taxidermy.

For many (including myself), Taxidermy is one of those slightly squeamish art forms, but this book aims to change that. Taking you through from the very first piece of Taxidermy in existence to modern artists such as Polly Morgan (who wrote the foreword), I now find myself fascinated. Some of the early pieces of Taxidermy are incredible and the photo of workmen trying to get a 15 ft stuffed Giraffe up the steps of the Natural History Museum in the 50s is amazing!
Some of the collections photographed are truly exquisite, some on the slightly bizarre side, but all are real works of art.
I would really recommend this book for both keen Taxidermists or lovers of Taxidermy, and those that are intrigued or just appreciate beautiful art.

This ground-breaking book takes a broad look at an unusual and fascinating subject from the origins of taxidermy to new and imaginative, contemporary use of the art. Delightful to read with beautiful, stylish photography.
