A carefully selected group of popular artists and acclaimed, bestselling fantasy authors has been assembled to bring Dr. Lambshead’s cabinet of curiosities to life. Including contributions from Alan Moore, Lev Grossman, Mike Mignola, China MiÉville, Cherie Priest, Carrie Vaughn, Greg Broadmore, Naomi Novik, Garth Nix, Michael Moorcock , Holly Black, Jeffrey Ford, Ted Chiang, and many more.
The Thackery T Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities is a work of fantasy. However, one can almost believe some of the ridiculous and fascinating photos, stories and drawings to be based on fact. It is an irrefutable truth that many inventions have never been put into mainstream production, because they are too dangerous or weird for everyday usage. For this reason, the collection of darkly humorous and sometimes just dark oddities contained within this book is well worth a read, maybe even some serious contemplation.
