Marc  Ritter, Tom  Ising - Final Curtain


A comprehensive book on the topic of death that leaves no questions unanswered

Is there such a thing as a good death? Why do so many celebrities die at the age of 27? And is it true that you can have your ashes sent to the moon?

This book is a tribute to death. Brilliantly researched and opulently illustrated, it looks at the subject of dying in all its facets: as a compendium. Aspects like Memento mori in the field of art, euthanasia or how to make your own coffin – the practical and the quaint stand side by side.

With this surprisingly entertaining book each one of us can find his or her own individual approach to a topic that is still pushed aside although it is inescapable.
