Brand:  Thames and Hudson

A grim but beautiful large format hardback with stunning photography of ossuaries, charnel houses, decorated skeletons, crypts, bone filled chapels, glassed topped coffins, filled with dusty remains, walls decorated with skulls and all the dark glory of the momento mori of Europe. The text is a cultural history of this phenomena, but the wonder of the book is its stunning imagery.
