Going Out in Style: The Architecture of Eternity provides an entertaining and fascinating look at some of the most ostentatious and creative architecture in America. Whether Classical Revival or Romanesque, Gothic Revival or Art Deco, mausoleums are a time capsule of a specific period in our history. They are often the work of America's foremost architects and in some cases the only surviving examples of a particular architect's work. Finding and photographing mausoleums has become a mission for Douglas Keister. Here he teams up with Xavier A. Cronin, former associate editor of American Cemetery magazine. They have photographed sites in New York, Boston, Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Oakland and in the process have gained unprecedented access to some of the most beautiful and historic cemeteries in the country, creating a historic record of American culture and attitudes.
