    1. What an absolutely beautiful book Thanatos Archive put together. The pictures are almost other-worldly, as if I'm immersed in a dream. Indeed, I couldn't put the book down not only because of how wonderfully composed the book was but also of how and why the pictures were taken. The book is organized as follows:Deathbed/pre-mortemChildren & FamilyAdultsCrime/Murder/TragedyEphemera & MourningPetsThere were also a few essays that explored the history of post-mortem photography in different [...]


    2. I have been on a wait list for 1 year for this book, and it finally cames, it is a strange topic, but well presented with care and respect. I got to attend a exhibit of original photographs, at greenfield Village, next to the Henry Ford Museum-a decade ago. I realize I had seen these pictures, as a child attending flea markets, just never thought they were dead, just odd looking. Everyone, on old photos looks so stoic.I took 1 star off due the the color, size, and type of font used, under the ph [...]



    3. Easily a 5/5 book. I've always loved post mortem photography and think it's a beautiful way to memorialize a loved one. The children section was very difficult for me to look thru and I felt immense sadness looking at each photo. There were so many amazing photos in the book but two specifically stood out to me. Page 93 took my breath away, a small stunning little girl, blonde ringlets, perfect face, bruised and bloody. And page 132 broke my heart. Jealous wife, unfaithful (??) husband and innoc [...]




    4. I kickstarted this book because I am excited by the work of the Thanatos Archive. The photos here are carefully chosen to make the people in the past seem so real, like someone you know and would mourn as intensely as these must have been. It's a truly lovely, thought-provoking collection.I knocked one star off for the design of the book, however. While the glossy black pages do emphasize the photographs, the teeny italicized font that captions them is practically unreadable except in very stron [...]


    5. Simply lovely.This book was beautifully written and nice to look at. I was somewhat disappointed to see the same photograph used in more than one place to demonstrate a specific theme in mourning photography or practice, and I agree that the font size for photo captions was a tad small.Other than those minor complaints, the book is beautifully done with a great attention to detail and appreciation of subject matter. Even the book design itself was created to resemble the artistic flourishes that [...]


    6. This book was a tie-in with a 2013 exhibition of Victorian post-mortem photography. To our eyes the Victorian obsession with death can seem very morbid when compared to today’s more relaxed attitudes. The cult of mounring in the 19th century was instituted by Queen Victoria after the death of her beloved Albert and continued until her death. It finally ceased with the mass carnage of the First World War when often there wasn’t a body to bring home to bury as they often lay in a foreign land [...]


    7. I have a morbid fascination with the death and dead and this book has a lot of memento mori in it. Photos of posed dead people. Chapters on the history of mourning and death perspectives.


    8. Love Love Love. Most of my peers didn't like it, but post mortem photograpy was a popular thing in the day. I love old photograpy and this books fits right in with my likes.



    9. A beautifully put together collection of post mortem as well as some mourning and deathbed photography, from mid-19th century up to early to mid-20th century. The collection is divided into several sections; deathbed, children and family, adults, murder/crime/tragedy, mourning, and lastly pets. Each page has between one and three photographs, with a short text detailing the type of photograph it is as well as estimated year, and any and all details worth attention within the photographs. In betw [...]


    10. I bought this on a whim because I love Victorian-era things, especially post-mortem photography and oddities. It was also plastic wrapped at the store so it added to the mystery ;) I gotta say though, I have a few gripes about this book based on the price (I bought it for $25) and the quality of the book itself. The contents (meaning the actual photographs) were spectacular. But the presentation was upsetting to say the least. It's a beautiful book with gold gilding around the edges and black pa [...]


    11. I've been lusting after a book by the iconic Thanatos Archive for ages now and was so excited when I saw that this was being published! I'm so chuffed I finally got my hands on it as it's becoming quite difficult to get hold of. It is a stunning book, the black and white photos complemented by the black and gold theme. It has a wide range of post mortem photos from children to pets, all with little information so the reader can interpret them. It's the sort of book you flick through, imagining t [...]


    12. It may just be that I love the strange and unusual, or my love for the Victorian Era, but this book was both haunting and beautiful. Yes, simply put it's a compilation of dead people photos, but still an amazing read for the writing that was in it. The people back in that time truly did have a fine splendor about themselves, and even in death, the families made sure that they still went out in style. Yes, under the photos most of the people died from sickness and things that could have been avoi [...]


    13. This is one of those times when "liked it" isn't really the set of words I would use. It's fascinating, not least (as the several interesting essays point out) because death has not had a strong visual presence in my life. Heartbreaking, also, disturbing. A little bit of a relief to see death so portrayed -- it takes some of the mystery out of it. And also I appreciated a book on this subject with regards to the Victorians, as I have seen quite a few memorial hair jewelry pieces and it was somet [...]


    14. Post mortem daguerreotypes tend to have a reputation of being creepy and odd. And frankly, if I saw pictures of the deceased today, I'd say the same thing. I will be the first to admit, that at times this book is hard to look through. There's something so touching about them, though. For most families, this was the only photograph of their loved one. These daguerreotypes were full of love and sadness. They capture something that I have yet to see be captured today. And I think that's why I love [...]


    15. Великолепная книга! Прекрасно оформленная и напечатанная, она не просто удовлетворяет болезненный интерес к фотографиям умерших, но и даёт краткий, но интереснейший экскурс в историю траура и отношения к смерти в обществе. Некоторые эсссе немного сложно читать, но это нез [...]


    16. I bought this book based on a You Tuber's video recommendation. I was not disappointed. The book has some interesting essays detailing the history of post mortem and mourning photos, and then the actual pictures themselves were just mesmerizing. I couldn't get enough of them. The photos are not scary or disgusting, but sweet and also heart wrenching, but fascinating all at the same time. I definitely enjoyed this book. Well done.


    17. I find this book: Beautiful, melancholic, heartbreaking, timeless, respectful. A must for who is into photography.


    18. Beautiful and haunting. I am fascinated with post-mortem photography, and this is a gorgeous collection. I wish there was even more text than there is, but the photographs make this book a work of art.
