2. “Dead or Alive” by David McFadden and Lowery Sims

Dead or Alive by David McFadden and Lowery Sims. 

Fast food chicken bones, eggshells, feathers, seaweed, hairnets, red lentils, flies, cockroach wing fragments and taxidermied fighting dogs are just a few ingredients that are great for making a hearty stew or artwork. This book is chocked full of artists making art from the detritus of the once living. Fairy tale plus natural history museum equals fantastical art that begs you to look closer.
