really liked it
Read in January, 2009

This book is an excellent example of symbiosis: for one year, Scalin created a skull a day out of diverse materials, then assembled photos of each into a book. Taken one at a time, the skulls are clever, whimsical, unexpected, creepy, funny; taken all together, they become bigger than the sum of their parts. SKULLS is a comment on Death and Beauty (capitals are intentional). It bravely pokes fun at the Grim Reaper and the inevitable outcome of this mortal coil.
