‘Alexis Turner's TAXIDERMY is historical, romantic and curiosity-shop voyeurism. Turner's book is the first to consider this medium as an art form. The renowned London dealer and collector showcases the very best of both classic work and modern contemporary pieces'

Huffington Post

‘This beautifully bound book covers taxidermy's story, starting with the Egyptian mummification of cats to contemporary feather fashion on the cat walk'

San Francisco Chronicle

'A cacophony of the covetable, weird and wonderful...decidedly hard to put down.'
