Billboard Monuments of Maine by Ron Romano - SIGNED!
Highly recommended! Trade paperback format, signed by the author. Black and white illustration throughout.
A curious form of gravestone— resembling a billboard sign—was produced in Maine in the mid-1800s. Surviving examples are found today in at least 25 cemeteries across the state of Maine.
Cemetery historian Ron Romano provides a fascinating look at these family memorials and their makers, interwoven with compelling stories about the people whose graves they decorate and important historical issues of the period.
