Reviews
An unusual coffee-table book...You may be surprised by how much fun it is to pore through the book's lavish artwork of skulls, cadavers and fanciful imaginings of the afterlife. The writings cover spiritual and symbolic aspects of death [and] some essays delve into scientific history, such as miniature crime scenes used in forensic sci-ence and the history of cadavers in the study of anatomy.-- "Science News"
