Art of the Skull
250 fun and fabulous depictions of a pop-culture icon
From Day of the Dead to motorcycles and the “sickest headphones”—skulls rule! Laugh at Death over and over again through more than 250 fun, fabulous pictures of skulls in action—on the dance floor, in the parlor, zooming out of the garage, dangling from silver chains. These artisan-designed skulls range from heavy metal to granny-sweet dancing skeletons for wearing, decorating homes, scaring up shivers, and attracting a gawking crowd at every turn of the head.
