Subtitled "Fabulous Funerals of the Famous and Infamous", this interesting book presents information in a set format about 24 luminaries and their final rites. Each chapter begins with the person's nickname, dates of birth and death, a quote and a picture. Vital statistics are presented -- the age and cause of death, survivors left behind and other close brushes with death. A multi-page synopsis of the person's life is given, followed by a lengthy description of the funeral preparation and service, including what objects the person was buried with, and the headlines of the day. Printed on heavy paper, the design is very nice and the photographs are plentiful and of high quality. The people discussed are: Josephine Baker, Sarah Bernhardt, Winston Churchill, Salvador Dali, Thomas Edison, Mahatma Gandhi, Jim Henson, Grace Kelly, JFK, Ayatollah Khomeini, Martin Luther King, Jr., Marilyn Monroe, Notorious B.I.G., Eva Peron, Edith Piaf, Pope John Paul XXIII, Elvis Presley, FDR, Babe Ruth, Diana Spencer, Joseph Stalin, Igor Stravinsky, Rudolph Valentino and Mao Zedong. This is a great book to leave out for browsing, filled with great photos and interesting facts. I was very happy when I received it. Very nicely done.

This is a limited availability item. Mine arrived in fantastic condition. The book is a beautiful and detailed collection of pictures and biographical information. I collect books dealing in Thanatology (Death Studies) and in Death Care related subject material, as I am a death care professional. This item joins a treasury of collected works amassed over the past 20 years.
Wel
Interesting book!

Great book on funerals of some legendary people. In particular I remember the one about the funeral of Jim Henson. I wish it had a tad more photos (there were a lot but I like tons) but it's great for anyone into funerals and wants something on their cofee table..
Auau
This is a fun read and has lots of interesting information for those who are romanced by death. It is a great add to my collection-o-death.

It is a great book that I couldn't find in book stores or the library I would buy more copies

Good shape, just glad I didn't have it shipped directly to my husband as a gift because he would have seen the $1.00 PRICE tag on the very front of the book. :(
Other than that, fast delivery!!!!
There was chaos in the cemetery of Elvis internment. Riots at Rudy's mortuary! And then there was that nasty business of Eva Peron's globe-trotting body.
This is the perfect Halloween Coffee Table (or Coffin Top - if that's how one decorates for the Holiday) Book. The author tells tales of two dozen dearly departed and how they got there. At The Beginning of each End, she gives "Vital Statistics" varyingly including age at and cause of death, survivors, previous "close calls," and "Last Words" ("I'm so bored with it all" Sir Winston Churchill, "I'm going into the bathroom to read" Elvis Presley) There are other headlines at the time of death, concise and interesting bios, and, of course, details of funerals and send-offs. It includes many glossy black and white photos.
The book notes questionable cause (or perpetrator) of death for Marilyn Monroe and Martin Luther King, Jr. but then ascribes JFK's death to the lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald. When Pigs fly! And, speaking of pigs, Muppets sang at Jim Henson's memorail service, at which no one wore black. Reviewed by TundraVision
