A quirky, timely, and disturbingly beautiful how-to taxidermy guide, emphasizing ethical sourcing and personal expression Whether inspiration came from an exhibition at an edgy art gallery, a visit to the Natural History Museum, or the sight of your crazy uncle’s jackalope, more and more people are opening up to the fun and wonder of taxidermy. 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, 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 young 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 helpful how-to manual and a strangely captivating gift book, Stuffed Animals is the definitive guide to a growing movement.

Excerpt from Guide to Taxidermy Millions of birds are killed yearly in the United States by accidents, such as ying against light houses, telegraph wires, or buildings, etc. Fracti cally none of these are saved because there is no one at hand who has the requisite knowledge. If only a fraction of one per cent. Of all the birds killed accidentally, and those shot by sportsmen and thrown away, could be saved and correctly pre pared it would be unnecessary to shoot thousand-s that are now killed every year simply for museum purposes.
