If you are drawn to these slightly macabre collections and find skulls fascinating then you'll love this book! Makes those walks in the forest/heath/fells even more interesting

This review is from: Skulls: An Exploration of Alan Dudley's Curious Collection (Hardcover)
I am pleased with this book, it's interesting and shows a broad spectrum of skulls from across the animal kingdom. However, as mentioned by other reviewers, there is no sense of scale, the pictures are all of a similar size. It would be helpful for the description of the animal/bird/reptile to include a bodylength/height, particularly for lesser known species. Also, I noticed that there are a couple of sheep skulls, shown mostly for impressive horns maybe, and they are classified as 'Bovidae', can this be right? They are even toed ungulates, but surely not bovids. Any thoughts?

I wanted this book as a gift for my wife. She is an Artist and a lot of her work involves depictions of skulls and we have a number of these scattered around the house. Very impressed with the quality of the book and the images displayed.
If you like skulls, you will love this book !
