Other than the out-of-print book Tombstone Lettering in the British Isles by Alan Bartram, the books described here are the only ones on the subject of gravemarker lettering available anywhere. They present a detailed historical account of styles, their development and geographical distribution. They demonstrate the great variety of forms found throughout Europe and North America and explain how gravemarker inscriptions are an invaluable cultural resource. Methods of recording and analysis are covered in some detail. All are available directly from the author.
