Kingdom Under Glass, Journal of Empire Studies

Kingdom Under Glass, Journal of Empire Studies

One more of the illustrations created for the Journal of Empire Studies blog. This was a fun, colorful experience in illustration! Also, a little sad because of the subject matter.  The article for the blog is a review of the book, Kingdom Under Glass.  Kingdom Under Glass, by Jay Kirk, is about the famous explorer and taxidermist, Carl Akeley, who traveled around the world “collecting” exotic animals to be exhibited in museums. Akeley created the Hall of African Mammals at the Museum of Natural History.  So, here we have an elephant under glass, preserved for all eternity…
