"Let the reader not be shocked by this mixture
of the grave and the gay; let him rather reflect that
there is a sort of grandeur in all follies." - Baudelaire

A dandy is an effeminate man. A Dan-D-Noser is a tool used by taxidermists to create the appearance of a live deer's nose. This book presents a playful proposal for a more nuanced understanding of masculinity by examining the overlap between the culture of the dandy and that of the Dan-D. Herein, the macho activity of taxidermy is revealed as a form of male crafting that shares with the dandy a fascination with beauty, pride, and mortality.
