The Morbid Anatomy Anthology
"The Morbid Anatomy Anthology"--edited by Joanna Ebenstein, Creative Director of the Morbid Anatomy Museum and founder of Morbid Anatomy, and Colin Dickey, Managing Director of The Morbid Anatomy Museum--will be ready to ship April, 2014. The 500 page, lavishly illustrated, hardbound and full color book features 28 essays based on some of the most memorable lectures hosted by Morbid Anatomy since 2008.
Included are essays by Evan Michelson (star of Science Channel’s hit show "Oddities") on the catacombs of Palermo, Simon Chaplin (head of the Wellcome Library) on public displays of corpses in Georgian England, mortician Caitlin Doughty on demonic children, and Paul Koudounaris (author of "Empire of Death") on a truck stop populated with human skulls.
In addition are pieces on books bound in human skin, fin de siècle death-themed Parisian cafes, post-mortem photography, eroticized anatomical wax models, taxidermied humans and other animals, Santa Muerte, “artist of death” Frederik Ruysch, and much more.$30 @ The Morbid Anatomy Museum
