For centuries, Cabinets of Curiosities, or Wunderkammer, have offered glimpses of collected items from the natural world. Animals, plants, and minerals were displayed along with other objects reflecting a history that included colonization and misappropriation.
Printed books from the seventeenth century to the present include vivid illustrations of such displays. You can view examples here. This assignment invites you to begin your own Wunderkammer. Start by selecting one item and follow the activity.
