in Paris is another source if you're on the prowl for , and I owe a huge thank you to cattledogs reader for pointing them out to me. Insects, botanicals, anatomy, they have charts on everything you can imagine and they're priced between 18- 150,- euros, available for purchase at their store in Paris or right here .
Here's a glimpse of their store, have you ever seen so many stuffed animals in your life? And we're not talking hies here people...
This place has total taxidermy fever. I don't know if these animals are completely recreated from man-made materials, or if they're formed using actual animal parts, but Deyrolle gives me the creeps. I do love the wall color though, and would definitely visit them just for the whole scare factor ( I love the vibe, it's cool I think). For me though, I'm sticking with the charts only (wink).
Note: No animals were harmed in the creation of this post. As for Deyrolle, no clue what's going on there. See no evil, hear no evil... (fingers in ears - la la la la la.)
