A Masque of Extinction

74 pages, 24 illustrations
1 5/8" x 1 3/8"
    
Illustrations of humans wearing the skulls of extinct animals as masks, dinosaurs mostly, but later animals and hominids, as well. Costumes for a cross-species Dance of Death that extends backwards through time. As we are now, so once were  they; as they are now, we soon will be.

(The concept for this one is a little difficult to explain. The images certainly looks deeply meaningful, but mostly I just wanted to put big dinosaur skulls on people's heads. Who doesn't?)

Bound in black Japanese paper printed with red dragonflies, with paper titles pasted on the front and spine, and decorative endpapers.
