Taxidermy Summary

Taxidermy by Alexis Turner

Taxidermy has come in from the cold. Stuffed animals are appearing everywhere from chic apartments to luxury boutiques. Museums have been dusting down their collections to put them back on display, while contemporary artists have rejuvenated the practice.

This book reveals the art of taxidermy in all its weird and wonderful glory, from its beginnings as a tool of natural history research, through crazes for anthropomorphic, zoomorphic and fake taxidermy, to its rediscovery by the art, fashion and design worlds of the 21st century.

Taxidermy Reviews

'A cacophony of the covetable, weird and wonderful decidedly hard to put down' - The Field
'The founder of London Taxidermy lends his twenty years of experience to the creation of this beautiful book that catalogues and illustrates every aspect of this resurgent art form' - Tatler
'A cabinet-of-curiosities of a book. Its beautiful, odd, intriguing, strange and sometimes repellent, just like the history of taxidermy itself' - The Irish Times
'Richly illustrated' - Fortean Times
