Cop this Book: "The Book of Skulls" by Faye Dowling

The skull motif channels a slew of emotions when one sets their eyes on the skeletal face - the image has been known to inspire creative and represent peace but conversely it's seen as the mark of rebellion and anarchy. In the world of art, music and street fashion the skull has been incorporated into album covers, tattoos, illustrations, paintings, badges, memorabilia and clothing over the decades to become one of the most iconic cultural symbols of our time. Freelance editor, curator and art buyer Faye Dowling celebrates this symbol in "The Book of Skulls" by compiling the different mediums in which the skull has been utilized including rock and hip hop inspirations from Black Sabbath and Cypress Hill to high fashion and pop culture creations from Alexander McQueen and Hello Kitty.
