TaxidermyBook - 2013
An unsurpassed survey of the world's finest examples of this popular art form--in situ from the greatest private and public collections to the beautifully assembled rooms of contemporary artists, stylists, and cutting-edge interior designers. Taxidermy is everywhere these days, from hip restaurants to posh clothing stores, and practically every luxury brand can be seen offering its wares on the backs of preserved, stuffed animals or incorporating them in their interiors. This is the first volume to consider taxidermy as an art form, and it balances showcasing classic work (such as pieces by Walter Potter) alongside innovative and modern contemporary pieces by various practitioners, from traditional taxidermists to interior designers, fashionistas, stylists, and fine artists.--Publisher website.
