Review: Stories in Stone: A Field Guide to Cemetery Symbolism and Iconography

User Review  - Amanda Quental - Goodreads

Helpful to understand the meaning of some of the symbols in a basic manner that I am drawn to in my photography of cemeteries. The book provided me with a simple base line that allowed me to further research any symbol I wanted extensive detail on. Read full review

In Keister's book, the author has created a field guide for cemetery enthusiasts that decodes the meanings of all the symbols encountered on gravestones. A must have for the serious sleuth. Read full review

User Review  - Pat - Goodreads

This is a very helpful, interesting book about cemeteries and the symbolism used on headstones, etc. As a taphophile, I often find something I am unfamiliar with, and this guide will be useful for deciphering. It is a nice size, and has a nice feel to it, as well. Read full review

I would give this book more than 5 stars, but that's all you can give! This book is very similar in subject matter to the one I am working on myself. Reading this one gave me a better understanding of the symbols I may run across during my own cemetery travels. Great companion to have! Read full review

Some useful info for one whose graveyard ramblings are limited to the Americas and parts of Western Europe, but the author almost totally ignored cemetery symbolism that isn't western/Christian. He ... Read full review
