What do you get when you put the lead guitarist from Queen together with a whole bunch of Victorian-era skeletons? The answer: "Diableries," a book by Queen's Brian May, along with Denis Pellerin and Paula Fleming, that puts together eerie stereoscopic photographs of skeletons (don't worry, they're sculptures) into a weirdly beautiful package. The above are 15 of our favorites!
