Crap Taxidermy To Cassell Illustrated

Posted at 6:39AM Thursday 03 Apr 2014

Cassell Illustrated (part of the Octopus Publishing Group) has bought Crap Taxidermy by Kat Su, founder of the hit tumblr. site, crappytaxidermy.com Crap Taxidermy will publish Autumn 2014.

You won't know whether to laugh or cry at these spectacularly bad attempts at taxidermy, brought to you courtesy of the hit website crappytaxidermy.com.

The site's plethora of bad taxidermy examples – including a squirrel riding a rattlesnake like a cowboy, and various anatomically imaginative renderings of all creatures great and small – have proved hugely popular. Here the very best of the worst stuffed animals are brought together in one full-colour volume; with additional features including a DIY 'Stuff Your Own Mouse' lesson, and an author's introduction to the craze for getting stuffed.

Kat comments: "I started the Crappy Taxidermy Tumblr in 2009 on a lark because I thought that the Internet needed an image depository of the funniest examples of taxidermy in existence. I always thought that I would end up going to Internet Jail for crimes against good taste, and I am beyond thrilled that the opposite of that has happened. I'm incredibly excited to work with Octopus Books to bring Crappy Taxidermy into book format."
