I bought this item as a gift. Contains a lot of illustrations (very creatives in general), with very good quality. I'm very happy with my book
This item certainly isn't for everyone but it makes a great gift if the situation is appropriate.
Traditional mediums used include oils, ink, photography, sculpture, clothing, and jewelry. Other artists produce skull tattoos, screen printing, quilting, lace, stickers, skateboards, and graffiti. While each artist depicts skulls differently, these images create an awareness of death’s constant presence. For some, skulls are seen as a way of differentiating oneself from mainstream society, as in Goth, skate, and gang cultures. For others, skulls show the universality of life and death that we face as individuals and collectively.
Dowling weaves together these brilliantly crisp images with background information regarding the Mexican Day of the Dead, the Renaissance theme of vanitas, and the skull as musical iconography. A beautifully collected and presented piece, The Book of Skulls gives us a fascinating look at the allure of our humanity in its purest form.
