The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities

Exhibits, Oddities, Images, and Stories from Top Authors and Artists

Some famous authors and artists have teamed up to share some of the items in Lambshead's varied multitude. I enjoy many of the authors that have written for this book and I love oddities and curiosities, but this didn't grab me. It was too confusing and strange, and didn't flow well, leaving me struggling to finish the book. The cover and artwork is outstanding though, reminiscent of nineteenth journals.

Thackery T. Lambshead had collected many odd and curious items throughout his life, most never photographed or completely described. After his death in England, the remains of his cabinet of curiosities are examined.
