Still Life

I just finished reading Still Life:Adventures in Taxidermy by Melissa Milgrom, and have to say, I really loved it! From all the history, including Carl Akeley and Walter Potter, to talk of all the innovations that have changed the art (the craft? both?) over the years, to the descriptions of the process, the people and the events in Taxidermy, the whole book was really great and very inspiring for me, as an animal sculptor. If you have any interest at all in taxidermy, you should check this out.
