Beyond The Dark Veil: Post Mortem & Mourning Photography
Beyond the Dark Veil : Post Mortem & Mourning Photography from The Thanatos Archive. Life and death are two sides of the same coin, but how often do we stop to consider death? How did our predecessors in the Victorian era grieve and remember loved ones?
This book is a collection of images, newspaper clippings and more from that time period, documenting how the people of the Victorian era acknowledged and mourned their dead loved ones. Supplemented with original newspaper articles, clippings, funeral notices, memorial ephemera and more, the collection is a journey through a part of our past that is fascinating, moving, and possesses a melancholy beauty.Published by: California State University and Last Gasp.
