The Memento Mori is time-honored artistic tradition in visual art. This latest variation, A Book About Death, is being organized by Matthew Rose of Paris, France. As of this date (May 3, 2009) artists are still welcome to contribute. Memento mori is a Latin phrase, the translation of which means "Be mindful of death". Memento Mori projects and creations can vary widely, but they share a common purpose; to remind us of our own mortality.
