Simon Faithfull, Explaining Taxonomy to a Bird
ISBN 978-3-00-065778-8

“Explaining Taxonomy to a Bird documents Simon Faithfull’s 2019 exhibition An Arbitrary Taxonomy of Birds at the Natural History Museum Berlin. Faithfull’s alternative classifications mischievously disrupt the established Linnaean naming and ordering system which Faithfull suggests is an extension of mankind’s “deranged and obsessive attempt to catalogue all life on Earth.”

The book is available from Laconic Books and contains an essay by Ruth Garde.
