The Book of Skulls

The SRK

The skull is one of the most recognizable symbols of todays contemporary visual culture. Since its 1970s renaissance in the iconic album designs of bands such as the Grateful Dead, the skull has found its way into the visual vocabulary of urban life, adorning T-Shirts, badges and rock memorabilia as the ultimate symbol of anarchy and rebellion.

By Faye Dowling, 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. 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.
