Gary R. Varner's Folklore Books
A new book on the art and symbolism of gravestones and tombs in pre-twentieth century cemeteries across the US.
Perhaps some of our most mysterious, impressive and artistic symbolism can be found in our cemeteries. Ancient pagan, classical Greek and Roman, and the eternal symbols of hope, love and despair appear in many of our older places of rest. This book looks at the art, history and meaning of pre-twentieth century grave markers and tombs in the United States, from Maine to South Carolina and California. Illustrated with over seventy photographs.
