The ultimate cemetery travel inspiration

The Cemetery Book: Graveyards, Catacombs and Other Travel Haunts Around the WorldThe Cemetery Book: Graveyards, Catacombs and Other Travel Haunts Around the World by Tom Weil
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Have a friend who likes to travel? This is the ultimate guidebook for people who love cemeteries. Travel writer Tom Weil rambles through graveyards on every continent, describing what he’s seen and filling in the history of the places. It’s a wonderful book, if somewhat painful to read: there are just too many places I want to see now! The book suffers (in my opinion) from a lack of illustrations, but it serves as a wonderful inspiration to go out and fill that void. Maybe if you buy the book, your friend will pony up for the planet tickets?

This review originally appeared on Gothic.Net in December 1999, as part of my “Don’t Go to the Graveyard without Me” review.
