Product Description

This gift volume celebrates the world- famous Deyrolle, temple to taxidermy and the natural world, where extraordinary curiosities highlight the intersection of science and art.

With an abundance of preserved flora and fauna, taxidermy, and otherworldly creations, the Deyrolle boutique is dedicated to showcasing the beauty of nature. A family venture founded in the spirit of discovery, Deyrolle’s 185-year history is a Pandora’s box of scientific and aesthetic discoveries. Deyrolle flourished under the nineteenth-century passion for natural history, garnering celebrity devotees from Dali to Nabokov, and quickly established itself as a center for education and research. A vocal advocate of sustainability and responsible business practices in the fields of taxidermy and entomology, Deyrolle works only with creatures that have expired from natural causes. Raising awareness for environmental and wildlife causes such as world rhino day, Deyrolle combines science and art, lightheartedness and engagement. This book provides fascinating insight into the history and day-to-day workings of this unique Parisian institution and into the wonders of the natural world.
