    1. This beautiful little book is the loveliest collection of graveyard photographs I have ever seen. The reproduction of the prints is flawless. The black and white stills are luminous, transmuting marble and bronze into the textures of light. The photos are displayed to best advantage, each one filling a trade-size page, faced by a blank white page which reflects light and helps to focus your eyes. Robinson first took note of the statues of grieving women as he photographed Pere Lachaise Cemetery [...]

    2. I bought this after buying "Beautiful Death" because I loved the photos so much. Unfortunately, this book was not as well put together. It's smaller (which I hate small photography books!) and most of the photos are in black & white, but are not very striking. I'm not sure if the photographer intended for the photos to be so gray or if that's the fault of the publisher. When I purchased this I was hoping to get more of the large, colored photos that were in Beautiful Death Even if they are i [...]

    3. Gorgeous collection of photos of female statues from European cemeteries. I think they could have tried a bit harder to find out whose graves these are and who commmissioned them. The male artist sees them all as grieving, but i think some of them look a little pleased or could care less the person is dead. maybe the widows paid for some?

    4. Out of all the photography books I own this one I cherish the most! This is one of the most beautiful books I have ever had the pleasure to look at. Lots and lots of wonderful black and white images of funerary statues, specifically mourning women from all over Europe (over half from France). A powerful book and a must own!

    5. I would have given this book a 5-star rating had it been larger. I was expecting a "coffee table" size tome and was disappointed to see that it was slightly smaller than your usual trade paperback.Not a lot of text, but more a photographic essay of statuary of women in various cemeteries. There are several beautiful black and white photos, mostly taken in Parisian and Italian graveyards.
