Exploring the Wonder-filled World of Anthropomorphic Taxidermy

Rick Nadeau's squirrels, featured in this week's cover story, are just an entry into the wonderful world of anthropomorphic taxidermy.

Tia Resleure's site, A Case of Curiosities, is the most complete source of information about the Victorian tableau-artist Walter Potter. Resleure also has photos of some of Potter's best dioramas.

In addition to being a Potter historian, Resleure is a taxidermist herself. She has posted plenty of her own work.
