I found the most wonderful museum/shop of curiosities! Unfortunately, you can’t shop online so for those of us not lucky enough to live near Melbourne Australia, we’ll have to plan a serious field trip!
Wunderkammer has a delightful collection of vintage lab and medical equipment, bones, fossils, insects, maps and ephemera. They even have a perfume library which contains the unexpected scents like that of human breast milk, sex and swamp water.
If you want to snuggle up to your computer for a nice read, I suggest visiting the Natural History page where you will learn all about ‘parascientific theories of the mind and hypnosis during the Victorian era.”
I wish the site was filled with more imagery and articles but I guess we’ll just have to get there and see it all in person. Still, the site is definitely worth a visit, so please check it out!
Before I go, I’m asking kitty owners to consider this. Who would win in a staring contest: Your cat or Ennui? I think Ennui would beat mine, only because my kitty can’t resist winking which I’m pretty sure is a disqualifying move in a staring contest.
Haiku away! I’ll see you next week…
