All-new stories and art from the doctor's wondrous collection
After the death of Dr. Thackery T. Lambshead at his house in Wimpering-on-the-Brook, England, a remarkable discovery was unearthed: the remains of an astonishing cabinet of curiosities. Many of these artifacts, curios, and wonders related to anecdotes and stories in the doctor's personal journals. Others, when shown to the doctor's friends, elicited further tales from a life like no other.
Thus, in keeping with the bold spirit exemplified by Dr. Lambshead and his exploits, we now proudly present highlights from the doctor's cabinet, reconstructed not only through visual representations but also through exciting stories of intrigue and adventure.
A carefully selected group of popular artists and acclaimed, bestselling authors has been assembled to bring this cabinet of curiosities to life:Featuring contributions from Alan Moore, Naomi Novik and Holly Black, this fantastical and cleverly imagined collection, centering around Dr. Thackery T. Lambshead's astonishing cabinet of curiosities, which is filled with artifacts and personal diaries, recreates the doctor's many exploits. 35,000 first printing.
