Massimo Listri: Cabinet of Curiosities
This lavish photobook explores eccentric collections where crafted objects co-exist with natural history – think shell sculptures paired with precious minerals, automata with stuffed animals, or carved ivories with taxidermy. Described as ‘a brief cultural history of the miraculous’, it spotlights extravagant 16th- and 17th-century cabinets of curiosity from across Europe.
