Dr. Seuss' Collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy

In the 1930's the creative genius of Theodor Seuss Giesel manifested itself in a series of imaginative sculptures rendered by the pioneer, better known to you and I as Dr. Seuss. The Collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy spans a total of 17.

In 1937, the artist’s sister, Marine, said jokingly: “They have a charming apartment on Park Avenue, New York, but it is so filled with his animals that I am apt to have a nightmare whenever I visit them.”

Ranging from a specimen of a Mulberry Street Unicorn to a Goo-Goo-Eyed Tasmanian Wolghast, the collection was said to be inspired from childhood visits to Springfield Zoo. A true testament to the artistic brilliance of the loveable writer and illustrator. Here, indulge your nostalgia a tad more:
