A curated cabinet of curiosities and collections from around the world.
This gorgeously illustrated full-colour hardback is a cabinet of curiosities in its own right, showcasing a range of significant museums, collections and exhibits from Australia and around the world. From some of the oldest objects in the world, to an underwater museum in Mexico and a collection of the world's smallest books in Russia, this book includes over 50 exhibitions from past to present.
It covers controversial exhibits, world-famous artefacts, surprising and unusual objects, playful and pretend museums made by artists, as well as some of the more weird and wonderful exhibits from private collectors. Covering a wide range of topics, from art, technology, the natural sciences, medicine, and the cultures of everyday life, this book is for readers aged 9+ with an interest in the weird and wonderful world around them.
'Beautifully illustrated . . . a treat for anyone who loves a museum' THE AGE
'What fun this book is! It brings together a terrific mix of exhibits of the old and the new, the strange (world's largest colossal squid), the tiny (objects that fit into a strand of hair) the amusing (see toilets!), to the serious and sad (war). Highly recommended' GOOD READING
