Memento Mori: Illustrated book talk with Paul Koudounaris

Presented by Boswell Books: Author, photographer, and death expert Dr. Paul Koudounaris discusses his new book, Memento Mori, recently named a top ten new art and photo book and listed by Interview Magazine as their choice for coffee table book of the month for April. With a slideshow of macabre images from around the world. His previous death-related books, Empire of Death and Heavenly Bodies, were both award winners and are considered classic in the study of the visual culture of the macabre, so tonight’s lecture should be a can’t miss event for fans of the weird and esoteric.
