Last Landscapes : The Architecture of the Cemetery in the West
Ken WorpoleISBN: 186189161X;
Book Description Last Landscapes explores death and the landscape of the cemetery. The picturesque village churchyard; the tightly packed "historic cities of the dead" such as the Jewish Cemetery in Prague; the war cemeteries of Northern France;the modernism of the Stockholm Woodland Cemetery; the graveyards of North America -- in discussing the history and culture of these architectural expressions of memory and loss, Ken Worpole also -locates the national, religious and romantic attitudes they express. This evocative book, which also examines the contemporary memorialization of artists such as Rachel Whiteread and Ian Hamilton Finlay, contains more than 100 color pictures.
