I absolutely cannot wait to read this book. Melissa Milgrom approaches the controversial subject of taxidermy, studying and interviewing taxidermists for over five years. She shows that modern taxidermy intertwines art, naturalism, science, hunting, and recycling for a refreshing take on this Victorian-rooted hobby.
