Skulls : Portraits of the Dead and the Stories They Tell, Hardback Book

Skulls : Portraits of the Dead and the Stories They Tell Hardback



It is said that the skull is the only human body part that is as powerful dead as it was when living.

Skulls takes the reader on an eerie journey through history seen through the hollow eye sockets of this crown jewel of the human skeleton.

The book is made up of a series of short illustrated stories laced with fascinating facts, historical and medical references and compelling anecdotes.

The testimonials of thirty-plus skull collectors reveal what is known of - or speculated about - the often gruesome history of the skulls, as well as how they were acquired and what makes them so highly prized.
