Skull iconography has come to occupy a central place in modern art and culture, from children’s sweets and ankle tattoos to street art. Graphic artist Ilya Illkillya curates and annotates this lavishly illustrated compendium of examples from many different art forms, while referring back to historical precedents such as medieval ossuaries and the Mexican Day of the Dead.
