Curious Coffins and Bizarre Burials: Death Rituals Around the World
Thesis Project

Selected spreads and a spot illustration from a nonfiction picture book pitch about death rituals around the world. The book is aimed at children aged 10–14, inspired by my love for anthropology and morbid trivia growing up. The book surveys the many religious and funerary traditions across the globe; how we grieve, and how we dispose of and remember our dead.
