SK-SK-SK-SKELETONS!

Nestled gently between SIGNS & BILLBOARDS and SMALL TOWN AMERICA in our Picture Collection, SKELETONS boast about 100 items and is a good place to stop by for skeletal anatomy references, to contemplate your own mortality, or to find inspiration for the Scandinavian Black Metal album cover you’ve been hired to create.

See: True Norwegian black metal : we turn in the night consumed by fire in our book stacks.

A small sampling of our calcium-loving, rigid organs:

I have neither credits nor a context for this.

National Geographic, Vol. 202, no. 2 (August 2002). This skull was found in the republic of Georgia and is 1.75 million years old.

Three Skulls by Candace Dicarlo. From Black & White Magazine, no. 52 (August 2007).

This is either a diagram of an "I can't believe I'm alive" story, or a diagram of how this guy got to be real dead.

Military Histroy Quarterly, vol. 2, no. 1. Disorderly mass grave.

Gracilization. I love this word.
