Memento Mori: The Dead Among Us

by Paul Koudounaris Author

Why do some people sleep next to mummies in their bed?

An examination of the duality of life and death, lavishly photographed. Paul Koudounaris serves as your personal pyschopomp, bringing you from mysterious burial caves in Asia to mummies in Bolivia, from alpine ossuaries to Peruvian necropolises. This book is as much a celebration of life as it is an examination of death, and Koudounaris gently blurs the dichotomy between life and death.
