Walter Potter's Museum of Curious Taxidermy on Film, Circa 1965!
Some of you might remember seeing a post or two here on Morbid Anatomy devoted to the inspired work of Victorian anthropomorphic taxidermist Walter Potter. I have long been a huge fan of his work, but until now, I had no idea that there existed a circa 1965 film documenting a visit to his museum which was, sadly, broken up at auction a few years ago.
All I have to say is WOW.
Thanks so much to Lee Unkrich for sending this to me!
