The Breathless Zoo: Taxidermy and the Cultures of Longing

September 7, 2012 by morgan

It is the mission of the natural history museum to classify, order, and index the natural world. Now I, Morgan Mavis, have been indexed in Rachel Poliquin’s long awaited cultural history of taxidermy:¬†The Breathless Zoo: Taxidermy and the Cultures of ¬†Longing. The CZC and my collection practices are featured on a two page spread and glossy colour photo by Christopher Bennell. Poliquin is the foremost contemporary scholar on taxidermy and is well known for her blog Ravishing Beasts. This is a must have publication in any academic’s or taxidermy enthusiast’s library. Make sure to take a look at pages 168-169.
