I have added these two books to my cemetery bookshelf:
• Keister, Douglas. Forever L.A.; A Field Guide to Los Angeles Cemeteries and Their Residents. Layton, Utah: Gibbs Smith. 2010.
• Strangstand, Lynette. A Graveyard Preservation Primer. AltaMira Press. 1995
The other day [on facebook] I asked Douglas Keister about his next book. Forever New York is what he is working on now and it's expected to release late 2011. I believe this will be his 5th cemetery book. I have the other 4 and the original Stories in Stone and Forever Dixie are my favorite, followed by Going Out in Style and Forever L.A. He does other photography too. He could probably photograph doorknobs and make a good book out of it.
