In the 16th century, learned aristocrats curated collections of wondrous, exotic artefacts across the fields of natural history, anthropology and religion. These wunderkammern, or cabinets of curiosity, were the precursors to museums – tributes to the thirst for knowledge and understanding that makes us human.
This book is a collection of specimens, geological samples and historical objects. Behind each one hides something that reveals a secret about its creation, evolution or connection to history. Use the red magnifying glass to uncover a second illustration hidden under the first, and illuminate a world beyond the obvious.
Beautifully illustrated and packaged, this is a gift book that will delight and inspire.
