This is a campaign is to raise funds to print and produce the new Morbid Anatomy Anthology, a lavishly-llustrated book comprising a collection of articles based on some of the best of the Morbid Anatomy Presents lectures and presentation series.

Topics covered will include anthropodermic bibliopegy (ie. books bound in human skin), 19th Century Diableries, collections of preserved human tattoos, death themed 19th century Parisian cabarets, extreme taxidermy, popular wax anatomical models, collecting death, the Anatomical VenusSanta Muerte and Death in Mexico, Terror Management Theory, l'Inconnue de la Seine, "artist of death" Frederik Ruyschmacabre collections, and much, much more. 

The rogue scholars, artists, writers, museologists, morticians and scientists whose works will fill this volume will include (in no particular order):

Risks and challenges

Joanna has years of book design and layout experience, and Colin has ample editing experience, so we're well placed to produce a beautiful, substantial body of work. The fact that we've lined up so many great writers testifies to the potential of this project. Our main challenge will be finding and working with a printer that can ensure a great-looking finished product. Obviously, the more backers we get, the better chances of producing a stellar finished book.
