Stickerbomb Skulls

The skull is arguably one of the most powerful symbols we’ve ever known and is generally wrapped up with reflections on death, the afterlife and the human condition.

This unsavoury, morbid obsession has been carried by everyone from Hamlet to Damien Hirst and is now the subject of a new Laurence King sticker book, Stickerbomb Skulls.

It has been designed by Studio Rarekwai (SRK), which is based in London and Jakarta.

Taking a range of highly stylised examples by artists from all over the world, the book finds examples from graphic design, fashion, jewellery, music, tattoos and street art.

Stickers are a big part of street art for some graffiti writers, and they’re also a popular promo tool for artists and illustrators.

They can often be found jostling for space on toilet doors and otherwise uninspiring places.

The book is the latest in a series from Laurence King, which includes Stickerbomb, Stickerbomb2, Stickerbomb XL, Stickerbomb Letters and Stickerbomb Monsters.

Stickerbomb Skulls is published by Laurence King in August and priced £15.95
