Well today's your lucky day.

More great photos of cemeteries—that predate or defy the enflattening of the American cemetery in the 19th century—are here. (My favorite: the whalebone fence at the cemetery in Point Hope, Alaska.)

And more about that enflattening (blame a Prussian immigrant named Adolph Strauch) plus people who are trying to make cemeteries look interesting again here.

h/t to Greg Lundgren and his cast-glass monuments.
