Just received my new issue of Epitaphs, Fall & Winter 2008.
Great photographs from around the world - heartbreaking ones by Epitaphs's Editor in Chief, Minda Powers-Douglas in "Chippiannock Cemetery's Storm of the Century", Rock Island, Illinois, USA, intriguing photos by Michele Jankowski about "Saltzburg's [Austria] Gardens of the Dead" - other cemetery photographs are from around the US, and from London, England and Turkey.
And don't miss William 'Terry' Thornton's article about the Graveyard Rabbits - "Taphophiles Are Multiplying Like Rabbits."
Both Terry Thornton and Minda Powers-Douglas are members of the Association of Graveyard Rabbits. Terry, founder of the Association, writes about cemeteries in Mississipi, USA and Minda writes and teaches about cemeteries in the Quad Cities areas in Illinois and Iowa.
