Book says about itself: Comic & Curious memorial Inscriptions Collected by Fritz Spiegl and recreated by Jane Knights. The writers and engravers of English tomstone inscriptions often displayed a deliciously witty turn of phrase in places and situations where one would expect nothing but solemnity.

I Say: Pub. 1971. Written and printed in England. This is an unique book. The whole book is in the shape of a tombstone. The inscriptions are by turns hilarious, quaint, horribly truthful, and thought provoking.
