Stuffed Freaks and a Private Tour of "Potter's Museum of Curiosity": Guest Post by Annabel de Vetten-Peterson

In 1998 I came across Mr. Potter's wonderful works while researching my degree pieces for my BA in Fine Art Sculpture at Wolverhampton University. I was making conjoined taxidermy pheasants and was reading up on all sorts of things about sideshows, freaks of nature, general natural oddities and unusual taxidermy.

My Trip to Alexis Turner's "London Taxidermy": Guest Post by Joanna Ebenstein, Morbid Anatomy Editor and Co-Author of "Walter Potter's Curious World of Taxidermy"

A few days ago, I paid a lovely visit to Alexis Turner, author of the new and beautiful Thames and Hudson book Taxidermy. He is also, it turns out, the man behind the showroom/shop "London Taxidermy." Below are some photos from my visit; you can see more by clicking here, order a copy of Turner's book by clicking here, and find out more about "London Taxidermy" by clicking here.
