I’m reading about corpses, coffins and crypts

Corpses, Coffins & Crypts–A History of Burial by Penny Colman

corpses coffins crypts book

Love the pictures and the author’s conversational style. I found it at my local library. Libraries are so cool. Usually I let Steve pick out books for me but every once in a while I make time to visit the library and I’m always amazed by what I find there. Additional craziness about a dutch embalmer, child skeletons and the tsar of Russia here!
