Full Description

“We make treasures for people who long for beauty, wonder and spectacle” – Jeroen Lemaitre “Stuffed animals have become the lingia franca of a contemporary Game of Thrones-ish design evocation of the mythical, the eldritch and the cabinet of curiosities” – The Guardian 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. This book 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 standard edition is also availble: Wonders are Collectible ISBN 9789401434652
