Curiosities

01Feb11

The table of contents and cover design for Ann and Jeff VanderMeer’s The Thackery¬† T Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities. The general description is as follows:

“A showcase for some of the world’s greatest imaginations, copiously illustrated‚Ķ

A stunning find beneath the famed Dr. Thackery T. Lambshead’s house years after his death: a basement space lost under a collapsed floor, in which were found the remains of a remarkable cabinet of curiosities. Containing artifacts, curios, and keepsakes collected over Dr. Lambshead’s many, many decades, the cabinet of curiosities took over a year to unearth, document, and catalog. Thus, in keeping with the bold spirit exemplified by Dr. Lambshead and his exploits, we are now proud to present highlights from the doctor’s cabinet, reconstructed not only through original visual representations by the likes of Mike Mignola, Greg Broadmore, and Jan Svankmajer, but also through exciting stories of intrigue and adventure. (Sumptuous title pages provided by John Coulthart.)”

More information (including the toc) can be found here. The preorder page on amazon is here.

Collapse contributors Reza Negarestani, China Mieville, and Kristen Alvanson all have contributions. I also have a very small contribution in the cabinet.
