Even if you missed the Last Gasp Kickstarter from last month, The Thanatos Archive book, Beyond the Dark Veil: Post Mortem & Mourning Photography, is now available to pre-order on Amazon. Quantities are limited, but I know that Loved to Death in San Francisco has received a shipment of them already!
The Thanatos Archive is home an incredibly extensive collection of original nineteenth and early twentieth century post-mortem and memorial photographs and memorabilia, dating as far back as the 1840s. Hosting an expansive collection online, it is supported by the sponsorship of its members. You may browse the collection without a subscription, however you will only have access to thumbnails of the incredible images and not to the full size, and will also be offered discounts to their incredible shop. I highly recommend paying the small subscriber fee, it is worth it for the images alone.
