About this book

Aren't we all rendered speechless by the ultimate beauty that nature has to offer? Don't we all want to capture it and indulge in these images forever? To capture animals in all their glory in such a way that it shows every flamboyant, scintillating detail is a delicate art. Wonders are Collectible gives an overview of the history, the myths and the symbolism, the process, the most wonderful collections and interiors, decorated as true Wunderkammers, and the craftsmen and artists from past and present who elevated taxidermy to fine art.

The special edition is limited to 550 copies, and comes in a deluxe box, along with a beautiful piece of taxidermy art – either a butterfly, a bug, or a beetle.
