We at Morbid Anatomy are thrilled to announce our new Morbid Anatomy Anthology Deluxe Handmade Slipcased Limited Edition shipping mid to late November, just in time for Christmas!
Limited to only 110 copies, each newly revised second edition of our long sold out Morbid Anatomy Anthology is housed in a custom handmade black-on-black slipcase embossed with silver foil, and is signed and numbered by co-editors Colin Dickey and Joanna Ebenstein. This lavishly illustrated full-color 500 page collection contains 28 essays based on some of the most popular lectures hosted at Morbid Anatomy including pieces by Evan Michelson (star of Science Channel’s hit show "Oddities") on the catacombs of Palermo, Simon Chaplin (head of the Wellcome Library) on public displays of corpses in Georgian England, mortician Caitlin Doughty (author of Smoke Gets in Your Eyes) on demonic children, and Paul Koudounaris (author of Empire of Death) on a truck stop populated with human skulls. Included is a handmade letterpress booklet containing a toast written and signed by artistic advisor Mark Dion; a DVD of filmmaker in residence Ronni Thomas' film "Walter Potter: The Man who Married Kittens" along with other Morbid Anatomy Presents shorts; AND a one year membership to the Morbid Anatomy Museum. All for $150.
Additionally, all preorders receive a signed and numbered archival 5 X 7 photo print of the Palermo Catacombs by creative director Joanna Ebenstein.
We also have a very limited number of signed copies of Man-Eater: The Life and Legend of an American Cannibal, the latest book from true crime writer Harold Schecther. Man-Eater follows the story of a small group of prospectors who lost their way in the frozen wilderness of the Colorado Rockies in 1873. The ensuing events would become one of America's most notorious cannibalism cases.
