Description

From style wilderness to height of cool, taxidermy has staged an extraordinary comeback. No longer confined to stately homes, stuffed animals are appearing everywhere from modern apartments to luxury department stores. High-profile artists have rejuvenated the medium and museums have dusted down their historic collections and put them back on display. Illustrated with stunning photography that explores this rich artform, past and present, this title is the most comprehensive and beautiful survey of taxidermy ever produced.

Review quote

'All kinds of eccentric beasts appear in Alexis Turner's new taxidermy tome, from acrobatic elephants to Victorian two - headed beasts' - Metropolitan 'Its numerous colour photographs are of such astonishingly high quality as to take my breath away ... most handsomely presented and sumptuously bound ... it is all strikingly pleasing to the eye' - Fortean Times 'A cacophony of the covetable, weird and wonderful ... decidedly hard to put down' - Field 'The definitive book on the subject, illustrated with stunning photography that explores this rich artform, past and present. It is the most comprehensive and beautiful survey of taxidermy ever produced' - Antiques Info 'This intriguing book is a beautiful tribute to a controversial practice' - Stylist
