Home Taxidermy

October 31, 2007

I came across this book once while looking browsing in the library basement a couple of years ago. It still kind of scares me.

Home Taxidermy for Pleasure and Profit;
A Guide for Those Who Wish to Prepare and Mount Animals, Birds, Fish, Reptiles, etc., for Home, Den, or Office Decoration

Home Taxidermy

ETA: I’ve been scrolling through, looking at the illustrations and stopping to read a little here and there, and this thing is hilarious. Check out these pictures:

scary owl


cut on dotted lines

dead bird

bullet hole


author’s work

paper mold

fish face

duck face



  1. That screaming wombat on the cover does it for me!

  2. That’s my second favorite, after the owl :)
