The skull is one of the most recognizable symbols of today’s contemporary visual culture. Adorning T-Shirts, badges and rock memorabilia as the ultimate symbol of anarchy and rebellion, the image of the skull has found its way into the vocabulary of urban life.

In response to this cultural phenomenon, The Book of Skulls presents a cool visual guide to the skull, charting its rebirth through music and street fashion to become today’s ultimate anti-establishment icon. From the Grateful Dead to skater punk graffiti, from haute-couture to Damien Hirst, this book is the ultimate collection of iconic and unusual skull motifs.

Packaged in an amazing 'skeleton' binding and drawing together artwork from music, fashion, street art and graphic design, The Book of Skulls is a celebration of one of today’s most iconic cultural symbols.

Burnt Oak: Life and Death in London Town - Theatrical debut for plumber Laurence Lynch

A WEST End plumber has taken the plunge and started a new career as a playwright.

A production of Soho resident Laurence Lynch’s first play, Burnt Oak: Life and Death in London Town, will open next month at the

Leicester Square Theatre – a venue for which Mr Lynch once did the plumbing.

He told the West End Extra: “This sort of thing doesn’t normally happen to someone who unblocks urinals for a living. With the lack of arts funding, I feel incredibly privileged that this has happened to me.”

Set in a council flat in Burnt Oak, the area of London where Mr Lynch lived before moving to Soho more than 20 years ago, the play will be directed by Mr Lynch’s friend, Nathan Osgood.

It is based on the experiences of the playwright and his friends.

“It’s about an incident that happened to a friend of mine,” said Mr Lynch. “Well, at least that’s what sparked me off. My friends thought I’d gone a bit mad, and I probably had, but I had to write this play. In part, it was for my own catharsis.”

With casting now in its final stages, rehearsals set to begin shortly, and plans to write further plays, Mr Lynch is spending less time on his day job.

“It’s difficult to focus on plumbing once you get into theatre,” he added. “My customers are suffering!”
