Remember Me Tombstone Raven Mourning Poster
During the Victorian era, cemeteries were considered the place to be and
the place to be seen.
Some of the most interesting graveyards and cemeteries are located in
England, Bunhill (probably from
the words "Bone Hill"), Highgate and must we not forget the most poetic and
beautiful of all, Père-Lachaise cemetery, which is located in romantic Paris, France.
At the bottom of the tombstone in the poster is an old saying that had
once benn inscribed in stone:
Remember me as you pass by
As you are now so once was I -
As I am now so you will be
Prepare for death and follow me.
This poster is 17 inches wide by 22 inches high, generous black ink lushly printed on parchment stock.

An antique Koh-i-Noor rapidograph pen and Dr. P. H. Martin's Bombay Black India ink were used for final inking.
After completion, the image was hand-delivered to Ryan Gwinner Press in Portland, Oregon and printed on an offset printing press.
