Death: A Graveside Companion
The only certainty in life is death - the one great equaliser, no matter who we are - age, gender, race, class - it comes for us all. Death has, without a doubt, been one of the most commonly represented subjects in art for hundreds of years. It comes as no surprise that something so immanent, and yet, unknown, has been represented in such a vast variety of creative ways throughout history. This large book of nearly 400 pages contains over 1,000 images tracing humankind's attempts to imagine that great, inevitable unknown mystery of human life: death. The book is organized into themed chapters: The Art of Dying, Examining the Dead, Memorializing the Dead, The Personification of Death, Symbolizing Death, Death as Amusement, and The Dead After Life. Each chapter begins with thought-provoking articles by authors, artists and academics, followed by gallery spreads presenting a breathtaking variety of death-related imagery and artifacts. This is the latest from the fantastic publishers Thames and Hudson, edited by Joanna Ebenstein and designed by the highly respected creative mavericks Pony Ltd.
