Overview

Frank Newmyer, besides being the “winningest” taxidermist of all time, has done more to advance the artistic aspect of taxidermy than any other individual. His bird work has inspired a generation of new taxidermists. WASCO is proud to be the new publisher of this classic taxidermy instruction manual. Through a special agreement with the former publisher, Stackpole Books, this new trade edition is now published by WASCO along with our Breakthrough Wildlife Artist Manuals. Written by world champion bird taxidermist Frank Newmyer.

From one of the most gifted artistic talents of our time, the legendary Frank Newmyer, comes the first book devoted to the subject of design and composition for taxidermy displays. Along with a retrospective of his art, Frank explains the process of composing a display with line, shape, movement, and color, accompanied by explanations of the complexities in 40 of his favorite pieces. In this new 108 page book, Frank Newmyer explains negative and positive space, the importance of line in directing eye movement, how color selection influences perception, and his unique insight into the nature of taxidermy as it is practiced today.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BREAKTHROUGH MANUALS:
“I learned more reading this book than I learned in a 6 week taxidermy course that cost thousands. They didn’t even touch upon 1/10th of the material in the book.”

“I’d recommend them to the first time novice or a veteran commercial taxidermist–they both will find them worth every penny.”

“I’ve been a taxidermist for 12 years. These manuals have shown me things that will start saving me time and money immediately!”

“A real pleasure–I stayed up half the night reading. You guys have really outdone yourselves this time.”

“I wanted to write and say thanks for providing some great learning materials that have helped me learn more about taxidermy than I thought possible in such a short time.”
