The Book of Death includes poems, essays, and illustrations by Maxime Taccardi with ink, acrylic, pencil, and the artist's blood.
"My visions come from my dreams for most of the time, I try to let an open wound between reality and dreams. My Blood paintings are symbolically linked to that idea. I cut my wrists and use the brush directly on my wound. It is not intended to shock people as some would think but is merely a process. I see art as some sort of a ritual, a chat between spirits and my mortal flesh. I do recall on what philosopher Plato said about art which is the manifestation of spirits through artist bodies." Maxime Taccardi
