This little book is jam-packed with photographs, often three to a page. I like being able to see the grave monument in its surroundings, then close-ups of its details, although the layout doesn't vary and sometimes two of the photos are so similar as to be redundant. That said, the photographer records remarkable and beautiful things that I've seen nowhere else, so I'm glad to add this book to my collection.

I particularly like the snippets of information she adds about the monuments. The Bianchi

The photographs are simply breath taking, who knew cemeteries looked so good. I also liked the little paragraph of interesting facts about each grave featured, not the usual blah, blah, was buried here, but the things you don’t normally get to read about. I have some of Jeane Trend-Hill’s other books in my collection and as a photographer she is first class. If you love cemetery architecture or the unusual then is the book for you.
