Item description for Memento Mori: Churches and Churches of England by Simon Marsden...
Simple stone gravestones, richly carved table tombs and glowing stained glass memorial windows are part of the rich heritage to be found in England's churches and churchyards. They all mark the irrevocable certainty of death and seem to proclaim 'Memento Mori' - 'Remember you are mortal'. The quintessence of the English churchyard and its memorials has been beautifully captured by Simon Marsden who presents the results of his recent tour of the country in this new book. He has selected his personal favourites and the atmospheric illustrations are accompanied by a lively and informative text, as well as excerpts of prose and poetry. Simon Marsden has gained an international reputation for his evocative black and white photographs but for this book he has also taken colour images which provide a new and intriguing perspective.
