Still Life: Adventures in Taxidermy by Melissa Milgrom
Houghton Mifflin, 2010
Best Gift Of The Year Award 2010 goes to this gem, received yesterday from Mister Sabin Ousey. I can't wait to read it. Here's a review of it in the New York Times. I've been talking to Sabin about my obsessive love of taxidermy for a few years now. We even looked into going to a school for taxidermy but the only one we could find was in Montana and the alumni looked like children-eaters. Not in a good way.
