postmortem photography and memorial art

My dissertation topic, Postmortem photography and memorial art in the victorian times.
A massive interest of mine and something i feel i will be able to get motivated to research and write, i have some book wishlists for it, sleeping beauty by Stanley Burns would be a dream but i'd need to get a loan or something to buy it, secure the shadow by jay Ruby i am waiting on from the library, and the one i would love to get my hands on, The Harlem book of the Dead by James van Der Zee, this wonderful picture is by Van Der Zee and from that book

and some more stunning images
