Dig deep into the ancient secrets of the skull and how the timeless icon affects the world today.

Skulls are one of the oldest symbols of our world, rich with cultural resonance and significance. You see them everywhere, representing death, mortality, or consciousness.

From the origins of Aztec skull art and the Jolly Roger that was hoisted on pirate flags, to the sugar skull for Mexico's Day of the Dead, there is a wealth of history and culture behind the skull. And, of course, a long artistic tradition.

Skull Sourcebook is the first deep look at one of art's most iconic symbols: the human skull. Author Adele Nozedar explores its ancient meanings and symbolism with over 288 pages and 500 color photos of incredible artwork throughout history.

Discover the stories, lore, and cultural significance behind the skull and ponder dozens of artistic examples of skulls in art, tattoos, music, literature, and fashion. Skull Sourcebook features the work of contemporary artists, like Damien Hirst (Beautiful Inside My Head Forever) and George Ioannou (The Dead Famous Collection), the Skull Sourcebook is a varied and eclectic collection of one of the world's most-recognized symbols.
