About this book

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, Taxidermy is the most comprehensive and beautiful survey of taxidermy ever produced.

"All kinds of eccentric beasts appear in Alexis Turner's new taxidermy tome, from acrobatic elephants to Victorian two-headed beasts"
- Metropolitan
