Santa Muerta, the Mexican saint of death, as seen at Morbid Anatomy in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Cemeteries are not places where you’re likely to find a library – except perhaps one that deals with death. This library is the result of one woman’s quest to change how we think and talk about the subject of death. And you’ll find it – at least for now – in the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York.
