Skulls ($22) is a spellbinding and surprisingly beautiful exploration of over 300 different kinds of animal skulls ranging from amphibians and birds through fish to reptiles and mammals. Skulls was written by Simon Winchester, the New York Times bestselling author and was produced in collaboration with Touch Press and Theodore Gray, the two genius’ behind Solar System and The Elements. The story of skulls, as told by Winchester, is both rich and fascinating. We look at both animal and human skulls from every possible perspective; biological, historical, iconographic and historical. We have found this book to be both enlightening and riveting, and is one of those where you keep opening it, finding something different and wanting to share it.
