Summary:
Potter was a country taxidermist of no great expertise, but the anthropomorphic taxidermy tableaux that he built have become famous icons of Victorian whimsy. Many of Potter's most famour pieces were reunited for the acclaimed 2010 Museum of Everything exhibition. Here, for the last time, the collection is preserved and celebrated with new photographs of Potter's best-loved works.
