            Day of the Dead, a long-celebrated holiday in Mexico has spread throughout the world in recent years, infiltrating aspects of popular visual culture at large. Over the past decade, in particular, the powerfully iconic, colorful imagery associated with the holiday has captured the... public's imagination to become a world-wide, year-round phenomenon. This exciting volume, suffused with amazing color and energy, is the first to take the next logical step and include amazing Day of the Dead inspired works by makeup specialists, artists, tattooists and mask designers.

Not only for fans of Day of the Dead, but also of professional interest to tattooists, makeup artists and event planners.
