A comprehensive tome showcasing today's most beautiful art, fashion and design that has been influenced by humanity's affixation with the skull symbol. The neon camouflage embossed skull on this book's cover makes it blend in at a rave and features over 100 artists and designers from around the world that use Skulls in their artwork. This book cover, by famous French Designer Lucien Pellat-Finet, glows in the dark and each endpaper matches the cover design pattern. 'Skull Style' is a beautifully designed book that presents not only one of the most ancient symbols used in the history of mankind but how it is utilised in the most surprising and modern way today. Formerly an emblem of evil and mortality, the skull has been transformed into an avant-garde design element used in the most cutting-edge art, chic interiors and vanguard style of the moment. Whether embellished on costly T-shirts, woven on limited edition chairs, and even encrusted with diamonds sold at an art auction for $100 million, the skull is no longer just a daunting memento of our frail mortality but a contemporary figure of fashion. This 500-page book shows how this once morbid trinket of death has been reinvented into the much-desired decoration by the trendsetters of tomorrow.

Review:

'Fetishism isn't the only area in which designers express their dark side. The skull motif has long since morphed from a Gothic indicator to a fashion basic. And next month sees a gorgeous coffee-table book entitled, yes, Skulls, (£80), published by Farameh Media with four limited edition covers by cashmere king and skull-lover Lucien Pellat-Finet. Spookiness is having a moment, writes Martha Gill.' --Financial Times Weekend, Style Section October 29, 2011

Ron English likes it with a smile, Sante D Orazio prefers it with tattooed figures in the buff. Scott Campbell does it in stacks and stacks of uncut one-dollar bills. And Damian Hirst? Covered in 8,601 flawless diamonds. We re talking about the skull, of course-the bony, hollow-eyed symbol for all things mortal and macabre-and Patrice Farameh s new coffee table book Skull Style: Skulls in Contemporary Art and Design, which is devoted to the enduring motif. Released this week, it features nearly 500 pages worth of skulls, variously represented by those artists-and then some. The book, with covers by fashion designer Lucien Pellat-Finet and, in limited edition, pop artist Peter Tunney, features an endless list of names who have tackled skull imagery, all divvied up into the categories of art (English, Hirst and crew), product design (e.g. a teapot by Trevor Jackson), fashion (usual suspects Pellat-Finet and Alexander McQueen) and jewelry (Kerri Halpern), writes Venessa Lau. --Women's Wear Daily November 17, 2011

The trending variety packed curated collection of skulls [almost 500 pages] fashions Alexander Mcqueen s iconic skull scarf, colorfuls from Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Lucien Pellat-Finet signature cashmere fines. The shiny + cool jeweled entries include Vivienne Westwood, Iosselliani and mad stone by Kerri Halpern... the ARTISTIC Notables include D-FACE, Ron English, Damien Hirst, Jean-Paul Basquiat, Philippe Pasqua + COLLECTIBLE limited edition silkscreen signed book cover by artist PETER TUNNEY [less than 200 remain]. The perfect dose of skulls to view, especially if you re not yet ready to be wearing or living in it yet, writes Brigitte Segura. --Fashion Daily Magazine
