Read in December, 2012

I read this for my "Death, Dying, and the Afterlife" course at my university and I can honestly say that I'm going to buy it when I have the money. It's a lot of pictures, but they're so, SO worth staring at for several minutes at a time. It's a revealing look into a long dead culture whose fixation on death isn't so different than our own.
