You might have heard, we’re planning to make a book filled with the best work uploaded to the site over the past year. As part of the job we’ve been trawling through members’ work and we’ve noticed a strange trend… for taxidermy. So here you go, 5 images of dead and stuffed animals for your perusal. And do enlighten us on what is so inspiring about taxidermy, the sense of nostalgia, the underlying morbidity or something else?
