Full Description

Wunderkammern are showing up everywhere these days. Design webshops, expos, interior design stores: they all try to bring back the memory of the century-old tradition of Wunderkammer, or ‘the Cabinet of Curiosities’. This book is a Wunderkammer in itself, showcasing the most beautiful exotica, which explorers and adventurous merchants brought back from all over the world for rich collectors. Be amazed by beautiful seashells, stuffed animals, sculptured ostrich eggs, botanical drawings, ‘dragons’ preserved in formaldehyde, and bewildering Indiana Jones-like stories. A fascinating New World presented itself to them, and in this book, you’ll see it through their eyes.
