THE BOOK OF SKULLS
The skull is one of the most recognizable symbols of todays contemporary visual culture. Adorning T-Shirts, badges and rock memorabilia as the ultimate symbol of anarchy and rebellion, the image of the skull has found its way into the vocabulary of urban life.
In response to this cultural phenomenon, The Book of Skulls presents a cool visual guide to the skull, charting its rebirth through music and street fashion to become todays ultimate anti-establishment icon. From the Grateful Dead to skater punk graffiti, from haute-couture to Damien Hirst, this book is the ultimate collection of iconic and unusual skull motifs.
Drawing together artwork from music, fashion, street art and graphic design, The Book of Skulls is a celebration of one of todays most iconic cultural symbols.
