    • Third volume of the Post-Mortem Fairy Tales trilogy by the mysterious duo Mothmeister
    • An intriguing mix of taxidermy, mask art, and photography
    • ‘Taxidermy terrors: furry tales of the undead – in pictures.’ — The Guardian
    Full Description

    After the globally sold-out success of their first book Weird and Wonderful Post-Mortem Fairy Tales and the even more successful follow-up Dark and Dystopian Post-Mortem Fairy Tales, the artistic and eccentric duo Mothmeister once again ignites the imagination with their third book: Sinister and Spiritual Post-Mortem Fairy Tales. This grim and spiritual dream world is inspired by bog bodies, druids, voodoo cults, the mummified Sokushinbutsu monks, the cannibalistic Asmat tribe, Victorian freak shows, and much more.

    As always, Mothmeister pays homage to the animal kingdom, which, through their passion for taxidermy, comes to life in an enchanting biotope where everything coexists intuitively and effortlessly. Partly familiar, but mostly surreal. And because of that, extraordinarily intriguing.

    About the Author

Mothmeister's muses? Their impressive private collection of stuffed animals, masks, costumes, numerous international artists they collaborate with, and their unbridled wanderlust.
