Description


The intrigue of death in the City of Love

Paris, city of lights, city of love, city of magic, city of art, city of death. Around twelve million people call the Paris metropolitan area home, and millions more call it their permanent home, including upwards of seven million in the catacombs in the Montparnasse district.

The cemeteries and monuments in Stories in Stone Paris cut across a wide swath of the last two hundred years of Paris history. With this field guide in hand, discover the funerary architecture, memorials and symbolism within twenty-eight of Paris' notable resting places, including GPS coordinates for many gravesites.

Douglas Keister has authored more than thirty-five critically acclaimed books. His wealth of books on architecture has earned him the title "America's most noted photographer of historic architecture." His book Stories in Stone: A Field Guide to Cemetery Symbolism has garnered a number of glowing reviews. Keister has also authored additional cemetery guides titled Forever Dixie, Forever L.A., and Stories in Stone New York. He lives in Chico, California.
