Delve deep into the ancient secrets of the skull and how the lasting icon affects the world today.

Skull Sourcebook features hundreds of different skull images and artworks through history, and author Adele Nozedar deeply explores their iconic significance. Discover meanings, stories, and lore behind the skull and ponder dozens of artistic examples of skulls in art, tattoos, music, literature, fashion, and more. Accompanied with works by famous artists like Damien Hirst and George Ioannou, theSkull Sourcebook is a varied and eclectic collection of one of the world's most-recognized symbols.
