Reykyavík Cemetery
14 September, 2012

These images come from the Hólavallagarður cemetery in Reykyavík, Iceland. You won’t find the most innovative inscriptions here, but there are some cool techniques and some especially interesting forms of Icelandic-specific characters that are surprising. Also, a personal favorite of mine is when these damp, grayish cemeteries are covered in moss.

St. Louis Cemetery #1
30 August, 2011

From the archives: These pictures are from my first trip to New Orleans back in 2004. At the time I was a bit more in awe of the architecture of the cemetery than of the lettering found there… although there were some nice specimens found. Need to go back again now to check out the type closer. Also on the todo list: visit St Louis Cemetery #2 to complete the trilogy.

Photos from the St. Louis Cemetery #3 here.

On the way to the New Orleans Museum of Art Frank Grießhammer and I stopped by the St Louis Cemetery #3. I for one was rather impressed by the lettering on many of the inscriptions found there. Some local stone carver had a very interesting style at the turn of the 20th century.

Stumbled across the Trinity Church Cemetery in lower Manhattan. It’s rather old by American standards, most dates are mid 18th C. – mid 19th C. According to Wikipedia there are many notable people there. I didn’t notice though, was too busy admiring the lettering styles and nice illustrations.
