    STILL LIFE: Adventures in Taxidermy signed by the author, Melissa Milgrom, hardback edition

    When she was writing ‘Still Life’ (first published in 2010) Melissa tagged along with Ken Walker while he re-created a long-extinct Irish Elk, using DNA studies and paleolithic cave art as references. Her book, which the Washington Post said was, “Hilarious but respectful” and New Yorker called “Engrossing” helped to make taxidermy hip again.

    MARIPOSA ROAD: The First Big Butterfly Year signed by the author, Robert Michael Pyle. Hardback edition

    Bob is a Yale-trained ecologist and Guggenheim fellow who went from the Ivy League to the dark, old-growth forests of the Pacific Northwest. In 'Mariposa Road', he chronicles a year spent crisscrossing the U.S. to see the maximum number of butterfly species in a single year. (His final count: 477!) Bigfoot fans will know Bob as the author of Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing The Dark Divide.

    TAXIDERMY ART: A Rogue’s Guide to the Work, the Culture, and How to Do It Yourself, signed by the author, Robert Marbury

    This great, lavishly illustrated hardback book is a survey of contemporary American ‘rogue taxidermy’—taxidermy in which the goal is creating a work of art, not necessarily a lifelike or realistic impression of the animal. This book was blurbed by indy film icon John Waters, which tells you all you need to know!
