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 --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly Beautiful!!!
By CFox on May 12, 2020
This book arrived early from the seller, bubble wrapped with care and love as though it was a precious gem... which it is!!!
Beautiful pictures, most in color. A perfect coffee table book because the cemeteries are divided into locations so anyone can pick it up and easily find ones that they have already been to, or hope to get to.
I love the way it looks on my coffee table and I love the way it portrays these cemeteries as beautiful sanctuaries, while maintaining that slightly creepy feel anyone who loves a graveyard craves ;)
