Book Review: Stories in Stone
Keister, Douglas. Stories in Stone: A Field Guide to Cemetary Symbolism and Iconography. New York: MJF Books, 2004.
As a field guide, this is a book you take with you when out in the field, but I didn't do that, and proceeded to read it straight through anyway.
My primary takeaway from this is how silly so much symbolism is. It doesn't really have to mean anything, or have any particular meaning to you, it just has to mean what you want it to mean at the time.
