Cemetery Guardian of California’s Heritage

Cypress Lawn: Guardian of California's HeritageCypress Lawn: Guardian of California’s Heritage by Cindy Ehrlich

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of the most beautiful books in my library of cemetery books. Bound in silk, this collection of over 400 photographs examines the marble angels, architecture, foliage, stained glass, and history of the largest public cemetery in the San Francisco Bay Area. While the text reads like advertising copy, the photos are worth the expense. Many of them are shot using only natural light, which serves as the best travel enticement I can imagine.

You can order a copy from Amazon: Cypress Lawn: Guardian of California’s Heritage or it is available from the graveyard itself. You can order it via Cypress Lawn’s online store. Either way, you should have a copy in your library.
