Synopsis: Skulls, butterflies, hunting trophies, ancient Egyptian artifacts, the alleged skeletons of mythological creatures, and many other mysterious oddities fill cabinets of wonder. A centuries-old tradition developed in Europe during the Renaissance, cabinets of wonder (also known as curiosity cabinets) are once again in fashion. Shops, restaurants, and private residences echo these cabinets in their interior design, by making use of the eclectic vintage objects commonly featured in such collections. Cabinets of Wonder showcases exceptional collections in homes and museums, with more than 180 photographs, while also explaining the history behind the tradition, the best-known collections, and the types of objects typically displayed. Offering both a historical overview and a look into contemporary interior design, this extravagantly illustrated book celebrates the wonderfully odd world of cabinets of wonder.

About the Author: Christine Davenne is a lecturer in fine arts at the IUFM d’Aquitaine and is the author of the book Modernité du cabinet de curiosités. Christine Fleurent photographs regularly for women’s magazines and advertising and has contributed to numerous books, including La Cuisine des parfums and La Maison de Chocolat.
