This is the most beautiful book on my list of cemetery books. Bound in silk, this collection of over 400 photographs examines the marble angels, architecture, foliage, stained glass, and history of the largest public cemetery in the San Francisco Bay Area. While the text reads like advertising copy, the photos are worth the expense. Many of them are shot using only natural light, which serves as the best travel enticement I can imagine.
