It’s Friday the 13th and we thought you might need some reading material to go along with your scary movies. Morbid Curiosities is an interesting book for people that enjoy sideshows and things that are uncommon and bizarre. The book provides the read with a glimpse into 18 unique private collections and includes interviews with the aficionados. Collections of ouija boards. Taxidermy. Phrenology supplies. Preserved specimens. If it’s curious and grotesque, it’s probably in here.
But what’s better is that in Morbid Curiosities Paul Gambino doesn’t just show off the collections. He also interviews the collectors themselves to get their insight into what’s behind their own fascination, what drives their passion. It’s a curious look into the bizarre. If you’re a fan of the macabre or just a voyeur into other people’s strange and wonderful lives, this is your book.
