Simon Winchester's newest publication, a morbid skull picture book, explores Alan Dudley's infamous skull collection, including every bird and beast imaginable.

The book contains information on over 300 skulls and their ancestral animals, written by Winchester himself, and with high-definition, full-color photographs that are sure to grab the reader's attention at once.

Alan Dudley's skull collection is thought to be the largest and most extensive in the world, yet is only available to a select few people. With Winchester's book, daydreaming future explorers can take a look at a collection of incredible artifacts that would otherwise be unavailable to them. In this way, Winchester has created a book that is both accessible in its format and writing style, and in its content.

Whether you have a flair for the scientific and wish to further your zoology skills, or you're just fascinated by the macabre and the grotesque, 'Skulls' will satisfy your thirst for knowledge by the end of its pages.
