We’ve often blog(here, here and here) about Noah Scalin and his amazing Skull-a-Day project, which really helped to put skulls back on the art map again. Noah created 365 skulls in 365 days, hence skull-a-day, and shared it with the world. He instantly started to build a following and now Skull-a-Day is a worldwide hit.
Noah has always wanted to showcase his project in 1 place where you can sit and enjoy all of his creations all at once and he has launched this Skull Kickstarter project to make his dream a reality. There are numerous rewards from the Kickstarter project, which start at just $5. Bargain!
Please help Noah get this amazing book made! Follow this link to donate to his Skull-A-Day: 365 Days/365 Skulls -The Ultimate Book project.
I’ve taken some info from the Kickstarter page: “Finally the entire original Skull-A-Day project by Noah Scalin in book form! Including never before seen bonus materials.
With your help all 365 of the unique skulls from my entire original Skull-A-Day year-long art project will finally be available in one beautifully produced book.
Outside of their online home only a fraction of the project has ever appeared in print – including in my first book SKULLS, a detailed look at the first half of the year in skulls, which is now sadly out of print. However, with encouragement and help from my friend Ward Tefft, owner of the amazing, independent Chop Suey Books in Richmond, Virginia, I’m proud to finally create the book I’ve always imagined for the project: a beautiful, high-quality hardcover volume of all 365 of my skulls sold at an affordable price and distributed through the newly created imprint Chop Suey Books Books.
This is the first chance to hold all 365 of my skulls in your hands in an easy-to-follow chronological format, giving you a uniquely detailed view of the breadth of the project. The book will feature 260 full-color pages in a hardcover binding. And I’ve even designed the entire book myself to best showcase the images.
In addition the book features a brand new foreward by Anna Dhody, the curator of the world famous Mütter Museum, alongside a new introductory essay by yours truly. I’ve also included a bunch of brand new anecdotes about the creation of the pieces, as well as some alternate images and process shots that haven’t been seen before.”
Below is a mock-up of how the book might look – complete with Noah’s skull font!
Oh and Happy Friday the 13th!
