Morbid Curiosities - Paul Gambino
This is a book of eighteen private curiosity collections and interviews with each collector. The collections are of the forbidden, taboo and morbid: skulls, mummified body parts, items of taxidermy, prosthetics, magical objects and shrunken heads. In the essays, the collectors are found explaining their motivations for their passion and highlighting their favourites among the extremely bizarre objects they possess. This is a hardback richly illustrated throughout with colour photography, and many items photographed have never been publicly revealed before. Thus it is a truly unique book which will appeal to all lovers of that is bizarre and curious.
