The Wunderkammer or ‘cabinet of curiosities’ saw collectors including emperors and archdukes gathering objects from many strands of artistic, scientific, and intellectual endeavour, in an ambitious attempt to encompass all of humankind’s knowledge in a single room. To realize this book, Massimo Listri travelled to seven European countries over several decades. The result is a set of gorgeous photographs, an authoritative yet accessible introduction, and detailed commentary on 19 chambers, with highlights of the most remarkable items in each collection.
