Review

"Once upon a time, we knew that cemeteries were meant for the living as much as for the dead. In 199 Cemeteries to See Before You Die, Loren Rhoads does much to restore the cemetery to its proper place as a location worthy of a pilgrimage. From the colorful wooden graves of Romania's Merry Cemetery to the creative granite headstones in Vermont's Hope Cemetery, 199 Cemeteries is filled with beautiful examples of posthumous humor, astonishing artistry, and natural settings that rival the world's best parks. A much-needed book for the curious explorer and budding taphophile (cemetery-lover) alike."--Dylan Thuras, Co-Founder, Atlas Obscura

"Taphophiles rejoice! This eclectic compendium is packed with history, eye-catching monuments, quirky local characters, tips on interpreting cemetery symbolism, and fascinating finds. It's both a useful trip-planning tool and a browser's delight (although it may turn idle browsers into budding cemetery explorers). Next time someone asks why you love graveyards, show them this book."--Bess Lovejoy, author of Rest in Pieces: The Curious Fates of Famous Corpses

"Loren's obvious affection for cemeteries is evident throughout 199 Cemeteries. Her personal appreciation gives life to places most people would consider only to be about death. A must-have book for the budding cemetery traveler and the serious taphophile."--Lenore X, Managing Editor, Gothic Beauty Magazine

"If you're like me and find cemeteries a fascinating way to view the real history of a place (or even just a nice, quiet place to eat your lunch), then Loren Rhoads's 199 Cemeteries To See Before You Die is likely to become a well-worn travel companion. The snappy descriptions and beautiful photographs are just enough to whet your appetite to pack your bags."--Megan Rosenbloom, Death Salon --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
