A Modern Guide to Taxidermy
A quirky, timely and disturbingly beautiful how-to taxidermy guide, emphasising ethical sourcing and personal expression.
A mix of art, science and a touch of alchemy, taxidermy lets you engage with the natural world in ways most other people don’t. In Stuffed Animals, “rogue” taxidermists Divya Anantharaman and Katie Innamorato demystify the practice, shatter the gross stereotypes and make taxidermy accessible to anyone, anywhere. Committed to ethical and sustainable sourcing, Anantharaman and Innamorato are part of the vanguard of taxidermists who bring a sense of fun and experimentation to this old-school hobby. In their sold-out classes in Brooklyn, they teach hundreds of taxidermy novices how to create mantle-worthy pieces out of small birds and mammals. Both a how-to manual and a strangely captivating gift book, Stuffed Animals is the definitive guide to a growing DIY movement.
