Birds of a Feather
Alright, so it’s a little bit morbid to collect nearly an entire ecosystem of dead birds, but we can’t help but admire the curatorial process seen here. Featuring owls, hawks, sparrows, a baby flamingo, and even a turkey, this bookless library has gone extreme taxidermy. The shelving, available from NYC’s Bungalow 5, provides a bright accompaniment, turning the room from an ancient and rather staid library to something curiously modern.
