book of the dead pictures

The Book of the Dead exhibition reveals the depth and vivacity of the Egyptians' belief in the afterlife. A vignette from the Book of the Dead of Neferrenpet, The dead man travels on the boat of the sun god Ra. Egypt. Ancient Egyptian. 19th dynasty/ BC. The Book of the Dead of Hunefer, ca BC. Found in the collection of British Museum.

I love reading about our past- the people, clothes, customs, etc. Jennie was a well developed and likable main character. She had a strong head on her shoulders and knew what she wanted with life.

Her parent Historical fiction has always been one of my favorite genres. Her parents died years before and she was currently living with her horrid Aunt and Uncle.

When Jennie realizes Will may be haunting her, to tell her something, suspicions regarding his death are starting to brew in her head.

Spiritualism plays a big role in this novel. The idea of a spirit haunting Jennie and also the family visits a medium. I loved all the mystery and intrigue in this novel, and several of the twists completely shocked me and kept me on the edge of my seat.

There were a variety of sub-plots and secondary characters that added a lot to Picture the Dead. The historical facts were accurate and interesting, and will help readers learn even more about the Civil War and some of the lesser known aspects of the time period.

The images at the end of each chapter helped me picture the characters and memorabilia mentioned in the story even better. Photography played a large role in the book, so it helped to be able to actually see the photos described in the text.

My only complaints were that some of the characters were a bit under developed and at times the plot got a little confusing.

Picture The Dead is a charming gothic ghost story which incorporates elements of suspense, mystery and paranormal. Each chapter is ended with detailed illustrations which reflects the bits and pieces of Jennie's scrapbook.

The overall design of the book is very eye-catching and special. However, I don't feel particularly spooked or frightened by the story. Jennie is a likeable heroine.

She has just lost her beloved Will in a battlefield, and her heart aches for him, but be that as it may, she is Picture The Dead is a charming gothic ghost story which incorporates elements of suspense, mystery and paranormal.

She has just lost her beloved Will in a battlefield, and her heart aches for him, but be that as it may, she is still a normal girl who craves for love and attention.

So when Quinn Will's brother expresses his love for her, her heart starts to flutter. She considers of letting go of Will and try focusing her life in a new direction.

However, when strange things begin to happen in the Pritchett household, Jennie fears that Will's spirit is angry and unforgiving.

But then, she also discovers various clues in different forms, which arouses her suspicion about things that happen around her.

The author's command of language is rather impressive. Her writing style is distinctive and descriptive, her words significant yet easy to understand, gives the reader a better perceptive of what is happening at an exact moment.

The historical background of the story is quite refreshing - it is set during the period of the Civil War in America, when spiritualism is starting to take hold of the society.

I liked how the story turned out in the end. It was really unforeseen that I would heartily applaud the author's way of turning the direction of the novel.

Clues are thrown in bit by bit, but I never thought of the possibilities that there is a secret behind Will's death. Picture The Dead is a quick, enjoyable read, but it is not as creepy and haunting as I'd expected.

I'd say this book is more suitable for middle graders, but if you're a teen or adult who likes ghost stories, then just go ahead and pick it up.

Feb 19, Katie rated it really liked it Shelves: I love ghost stories. They are something new to me and so they are still unique.

I haven't read very many but Picture The Dead ranks high among the ones that I have read and makes me very interested in reading more.

Jennie Lovell does not have an easy life. After being orphaned, she and her twin, Toby, are forced to live with their Aunt Clara and Uncle Henry.

Things aren't too terrible though because Will and Quinn are there. Things get even better when Jennie falls in love with Will and he ask h I love ghost stories.

Things get even better when Jennie falls in love with Will and he ask her to marry him. All that changes though when all three boys join up and are sent to fight in the civil war.

Quinn is the only one who makes it home alive. But Will is still there and his ghost is trying to tell Jennie something.

Will she find out what it is before it's too late? Like I said, I haven't read many ghost stories so I didn't really know what to expect.

At first it was kind of creepy but the ghosts were friendly so it got better. The mystery of what Will was trying to tell Jennie was what kept me reading.

I never would have guessed it. The book was definitely a quick read and not just because of the plot. There were pictures and letters in the book that were very cool and they sped the book up a bit.

It wasn't just words like most YA books. The characters were only okay to me. I liked Jennie but she was almost obsessed with the ghost which seemed to blind her to what was right in front of her.

I did like that she wasn't whiny or snotty though. She grew up in a wealthy household but she was friends with the servants and actually cared for them.

Quinn, on the other hand, confused me most of the book. I understood him more at the end. Overall, Picture The Dead is just a really good book.

If you are a fan of ghost stories, check it out. Well, even if you are not a fan, I recommend it. And who knows, maybe it will make you a fan!

Apr 17, Katieb MundieMoms rated it really liked it Shelves: I absolutely loved that Adele Griffin wove a haunting love story around historical fiction.

I am such a sucker for history and really enjoyed this YA paranormal book. It's a haunting read, with a dark and twisty plot that had me devouring the pages.

While it's not a shake in the seat of your pants haunting, it's a vivid and real life haunting. I like that through out the book, there are vivid illustrated pages with pictures from Jennie's scrapbook.

The illustrations are of pictures, letters and I absolutely loved that Adele Griffin wove a haunting love story around historical fiction. The illustrations are of pictures, letters and little notes that detail this era perfectly and help Jennie figure out clues to her beloved William's death.

The characters and the setting felt very real to me, as the story takes place during the Civil War.

Jennie, and her twin brother Toby have lived with their Aunt, Uncle and cousins in Brookline, MA since her parents died.

Broken hearted and shunned from her wealthy relatives, Jennie finds she's neither women of the house, nor slave.

She's left to feel invisible. William's death feels unsettling to Jennie, and someone starts leaving her clues. The more clues Jennie uncovers, the more the hauntings continue.

Feeling like she's going mad, she turns to her cousin, William's younger brother Quincy and a spirit photographer, Mr. Being the only one from the family who survived the Civil War, a severely wounded Quincy returns home with some dark secrets of his own.

As Quincy and Jennie become closer, something sinister in the Pritchett household wants Jennie. Before it's too late, she must figure out if it's from among the living or the dead.

Jun 07, Haley Mathiot rated it really liked it. She soon learns there is more to Will's death than she thought. She is haunted by his ghost, and by the mysteries left unanswered.

Piece by piece she begins to uncover his secrets… and at the same time starts to fall in love with Quinn. But there is always more to a story when there are ghosts involved.

Picture the Dead had a lot of thought put into it. The mysteries presented and the way they were unearthed were fabulous—there were questions and surprises and answers that I didn't expect all the way up to the last page.

I liked Jennie, though I didn't like Quinn at all, even after she grew to love him. I had never met Will, since he was dead in the beginning of the story, but by the end of the book I felt I knew why Jennie had loved him.

I will say that the ending didn't have nearly enough closure for me, and I am left feeling slightly confused, though satisfied by how all the events played out.

The illustrations were very good, although I had a very hard time reading what was written on them. Hopefully in the finished copy of the book the words will be easier to read.

Jul 22, Jessi rated it it was ok Shelves: Considering this is written much like a traditional Gothic ghost story, I didn't find myself at all creeped out.

I figured out the "mystery" way too quickly in the story. I also found Jennie, the main character who tells the story, to be pretty silly.

I think I only Summary: I think I only kept reading because the design of the book is so awesome. The book is illustrated throughout to resemble Jennie's scrapbook of objects that she finds or steals and which relate to her life's story.

I also found much of the historical information from the novel to be interesting. In other words, I'm glad I read it, but I am equally glad that it was a short, quick read or I probably would have given up on it.

Aug 13, Wendy rated it really liked it. Did this get more attention when it was published and I just missed it? Super enjoyable, and I didn't expect the ending; I kept expecting that some of the people who seemed dead would be not dead and so on; but the book kept surprising me.

I was puzzled by what seemed like a couple of very obvious copy-editing mistakes and wondered if they were somehow part of the mystery, but it seems not.

I think the date on the photo of the twins is wrong, and either the birthdate of the dead sister or the i Did this get more attention when it was published and I just missed it?

I think the date on the photo of the twins is wrong, and either the birthdate of the dead sister or the idea that she would be almost the same age is wrong.

I kept expecting more significance to Jennie's twin Toby. Jul 09, Natalie rated it liked it Shelves: Jennie has lost her brother and her fiance Will to the Civil War.

Her place in her aunt and uncle's home is questionable until Quinn arrives wounded. Jennie decides to take care of him, slowing the process of being shoved out of her aunt's house.

But Quinn isn't the only one haunted. Jennie has a feeling Will is still around, trying to take her with him into death.

Or is he warning her about other treachery? An interesting historical story with illustrations and pictures.

It all wraps up in the Jennie has lost her brother and her fiance Will to the Civil War. It all wraps up in the end, but getting there may not be easy.

It's an easy read and written well, but it wasn't quite what I was expecting from the description. This novel also features illustrated segments from the MC's "scrapbook" at the start of every chapter, and "her" handwriting is often hard to read; so, neat idea there, but poor execution.

Jul 26, Amirah I. I think it'll capture younger audience more. Apr 15, Paula rated it really liked it.

This was a great book. It was a mystery, ghost story and historical novel. This was a very good read, also had good illustrations.

Mar 01, Angie rated it liked it. May 28, Courtney Gendreau rated it really liked it. Originally review posted at: This, for me, was one of those books that sits on your shelf for years and you just keep telling yourself that you will get to it someday.

In my normal reading style, I probably would never have ended up reading it, but recently I have been in a major reading slump and have had to rethink the way I choose what to read.

To try and break myself out of said slump, I have been rea Originally review posted at: To try and break myself out of said slump, I have been reading books with little commitment on my part.

One of the most unusual parts of the book were the illustrations that accompany the text. They are presented in the format of the protagonist's scrapbook.

I have seen mixed reviews of the illustration style, but I personally enjoyed it; they were unique and quirky though I will admit they do not really fit the time frame the book was set in.

For me, the illustrations not only helped to break up the book but added some suspense. I was often excited to see what the illustration for each chapter and how it would tie into the story.

The only real drawback I found to the illustrations was that some of the handwriting in the letters were hard to read, but that being said it is not completely necessary to read the letters to understand what is going on in the book they are more companion pieces.

I will say that this book is perfect for a quick read. The plot was quick and engaging, and the pictures really help move the story along and add a lot of dimension to the story.

The plot itself is not completely revolutionary by any means. I was able to guess some of the plot twists, but for me, this did not take away from the story.

The book itself is written in a style that both younger and older readers can enjoy. Because of this, I think that this book would be a good introduction to reading for younger individuals.

I can see younger readers really enjoying this story not only for the plot but for the quirky illustrations that accompany the book. In total, the presentation of this book was very unique and intriguing and could be suitable for a wide variety of individual Oct 31, Danya rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed Picture the Dead.

I'd been having a bit of a reading slump and this book made me go, "Yes! This is the kind of writing and thoughtful plotting I've been looking for!

Now, I was reading extremely carefully and actively trying to solve it which included flipping back to previous pages and double-checking information I felt pretty vindicated about that because I didn't used to be particularly good at figuring out mysteries!

In the case of Picture the Dead , though, I think if you weren't trying very hard to piece everything together, you probably would be surprised by the ending.

I thought the characterization was quite distinctive overall, helped along by the portraits we are given in the illustrations. She doesn't show a lot of emotion outwardly but it's clear that she loved Will.

I liked her inquisitive nature because it didn't seem forced on the reader. Some authors like to make their characters curious in an in-your-face kind of way, but Jennie wasn't like that; she was pretty clever in how she went about gathering information, rather than doing something stupid just to be "inquisitive.

Quinn's entrance back into Jennie's life is really what sets the story going. He presents quite the fascinating character — apparently suffering from emotional trauma related to the war he's got the whole wounded-with-a-tragic-past thing down cold and very angsty.

Also, the aunt is really annoying in a funny kind of way; she's so ridiculous, so horrible and self-centered that she's almost one of those characters you love to hate.

I wish we'd seen more of Toby and Will, to get a stronger sense of their personalities and their relationships with Jennie.

We don't get any sense of closure with either of them, unfortunately. And Toby in particular didn't seem to really play much of a role in the story at all, despite the fact that Jennie was convinced from the start that he was "haunting" her.

There's a real coming-of-age at the end, which was gratifying to see. Even though there's no romantic happily-ever-after, Jennie does in a sense get her happily-ever-after by escaping her family.

It plays on an assumption a casual reader probably wouldn't think to question, and I love that it's crafted like that right from the start, rather than haphazardly thrown together as the story progresses.

It's well-paced, the pieces gradually coming together, with a kind of creepy mood Towards the end it does seem like it's getting dragged out, but I think that was partly just because I was frustrated because I wanted to know the truth.

The snippets we're shown of "photos" and letters also add a lot to the reading experience and flavour of the story, making it stand out and feel more real.

The dimensions of a Book of the Dead could vary widely; the longest is 40m long while some are as short as 1m.

The scribes working on Book of the Dead papyri took more care over their work than those working on more mundane texts; care was taken to frame the text within margins, and to avoid writing on the joints between sheets.

The words peret em heru , or 'coming forth by day' sometimes appear on the reverse of the outer margin, perhaps acting as a label.

Books were often prefabricated in funerary workshops, with spaces being left for the name of the deceased to be written in later. The text of a New Kingdom Book of the Dead was typically written in cursive hieroglyphs , most often from left to right, but also sometimes from right to left.

The hieroglyphs were in columns, which were separated by black lines — a similar arrangement to that used when hieroglyphs were carved on tomb walls or monuments.

Illustrations were put in frames above, below, or between the columns of text. The largest illustrations took up a full page of papyrus.

From the 21st Dynasty onward, more copies of the Book of the Dead are found in hieratic script. The calligraphy is similar to that of other hieratic manuscripts of the New Kingdom; the text is written in horizontal lines across wide columns often the column size corresponds to the size of the papyrus sheets of which a scroll is made up.

Occasionally a hieratic Book of the Dead contains captions in hieroglyphic. The text of a Book of the Dead was written in both black and red ink, regardless of whether it was in hieroglyphic or hieratic script.

Most of the text was in black, with red ink used for the titles of spells, opening and closing sections of spells, the instructions to perform spells correctly in rituals, and also for the names of dangerous creatures such as the demon Apep.

The style and nature of the vignettes used to illustrate a Book of the Dead varies widely. Some contain lavish colour illustrations, even making use of gold leaf.

Others contain only line drawings, or one simple illustration at the opening. Book of the Dead papyri were often the work of several different scribes and artists whose work was literally pasted together.

The existence of the Book of the Dead was known as early as the Middle Ages, well before its contents could be understood.

Since it was found in tombs, it was evidently a document of a religious nature, and this led to the widespread misapprehension that the Book of the Dead was the equivalent of a Bible or Qur'an.

In Karl Richard Lepsius published a translation of a manuscript dated to the Ptolemaic era and coined the name " Book of The Dead" das Todtenbuch.

He also introduced the spell numbering system which is still in use, identifying different spells. The work of E. Wallis Budge , Birch's successor at the British Museum, is still in wide circulation — including both his hieroglyphic editions and his English translations of the Papyrus of Ani , though the latter are now considered inaccurate and out-of-date.

Allen and Raymond O. Orientverlag has released another series of related monographs, Totenbuchtexte , focused on analysis, synoptic comparison, and textual criticism.

Research work on the Book of the Dead has always posed technical difficulties thanks to the need to copy very long hieroglyphic texts.

Initially, these were copied out by hand, with the assistance either of tracing paper or a camera lucida. In the midth century, hieroglyphic fonts became available and made lithographic reproduction of manuscripts more feasible.

In the present day, hieroglyphics can be rendered in desktop publishing software and this, combined with digital print technology, means that the costs of publishing a Book of the Dead may be considerably reduced.

However, a very large amount of the source material in museums around the world remains unpublished. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

First her brother dies of disease which killed many more soldiers than did the battles themselves , then her cousin Quinn staggers home with a terrible wound to his face and the news that her fiance, Will, has died in combat.

There is certainly no shortage of novels for young people about this period, but Picture the Dead, with its genre-bending story, makes an important contribution to Civil War novels and would be an excellent purchase for school or public libraries, as well as for any reader who enjoys a good mystery and ghost story.

Apr 18, Anna rated it really liked it Shelves: She has lost her brother and now her fiance on the battlefields. With both the men gone Jennie feels lost.

When she becomes friends with a spirit photographer she learns secrets that are almost too hard to bare.

An interesting story about war, spirits and death. I've always found stories of the civil war captivating, especially hauntings or ghost stories.

I found Jenny's journey very enjoyable. The book has a definite Gothic feel, rich with historical detail that will keep the reader captivated.

Among the death and the grief there is a bit of a romance, but when the mystery is play out the relationship takes a surprising turn I wasn't expecting.

Picture the Dead is a dark, mysterious, a deliciously creepy read. Nov 11, Kat Heckenbach rated it liked it. The voice and writing in this book are strong, and I did find myself connecting quite well to the main character, Jennie.

However, the other characters never really came to life for me. I found the story interesting, though, and loved the ghostly elements.

There are illustrations--I happen to be someone who finds illustrations distracting, but I can see why these were included.

It does add to the historical feel of the novel, and reinforces Jennie's obsession with her scrapbook.

Overall a good re The voice and writing in this book are strong, and I did find myself connecting quite well to the main character, Jennie.

Overall a good read. Picture the Dead is one of those books that I was actually really excited to read. It had a lot of things going for it: Normally one of those is enough for me to snag a book, but all of them together and I'm there.

Sadly, something in Picture the Dead fell a bit short for me. It was just one thing that really bothered, but small things throughout the book.

At the start I was pulled into the book. No pu Picture the Dead is one of those books that I was actually really excited to read. No punches were held when I was thrown into the story as one of the boys returns home from the battlefield.

The Civil War in its last few years, and things have gotten ugly. Jennie has been plagued by the ghost of her twin brother, but he's not the only ghost whose about to return to Pritchett House.

It was the first few pages that I devoured, but about halfway through is when I had hard time staying with the story. The writing style is wonderful and Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown did so much research into the era.

Not just the war, but the fashion and attitudes of the time as well. Even the pieces of Jennie's scrapbook were amazing. However the plot went a bit wonky for me.

For me there were a few chapters where the plot sort of stopped and we were stuck with this internal debate with Jennie. Who I found the longer I was with the book I didn't really like.

I know the era well enough to know women didn't have a lot of option outside of a decent marriage, but I found I didn't so much care what happened to Jennie.

However I wanted to see something horrid happen to Aunt Clara. The last thing is really me being nit-picking I think. I wanted more of the ghost story aspect.

The whole chills down my spine, sleeping with the lights on moments. Which wasn't really what we got.

I know our ghost was suppose to be angry, but other than Jennie telling us he was angry, I didn't see it. The after effects of the haunting were described in Jennie's appearance, but there was only maybe two good moments where we saw their anger.

Also the ending left me wanting a bit a more. I don't mind a happy, or even a happy adjacent, ending, but I wanted a bit more with the big reveal I guess.

Wanted Jennie to be angrier or something. Maybe for Toby to have not have left her at all. Just something That all being said, Picture the Dead, was a quick read that had parts I really enjoyed.

I liked that these two authors didn't really hold punches when talking about the ugliness of the Civil War. A lot of people were driven to things they would never have done before the war.

Even its lead to the Spiritualism Movement as more and more boys were being announce Killed in Action. I loved their dive into the Spiritualism Movement and the photography used then to capture the ghosts of loved ones.

Through my weird fascination with the Civil War and 19th Century I love the idea of the Spiritualism Movement would have been like in its height.

So it was lovely to get a taste of that in Picture the Dead. The artwork attached to the story as Jennie scrapbook was amazing however.

I thought it added a nice visual as Jennie pieced things together. I was able to see the things she saw in the photos and clippings.

They were also I nice way to help see the characters coming and going since a few had photos taken. Buy, Borrow, or Skip: Maybe I'm too picky when it comes to ghost stories, and I missed out one something with Picture the Dead.

The writing is solid and its an easy afternoon fire, curled up in blanket book. This review, and other bookish things, can be found on my blog, Bookish Whispers!

Nov 15, Heidi rated it really liked it. An intriguing ghost story told with the aid of pictures. The carriage wheels rattle up to the house in the dead of night.

The entire household is quickly aroused from their slumber. Master Quinn has arrived home from the war, injured but alive.

Jennie takes one look in his eyes and sees the terrible truth: Jennie's world comes crashing down. Without Will, her position in the house becomes precarious.

She was taken in by her aunt a Four Stars: She was taken in by her aunt and uncle after her father died at the beginning of the war.

Her aunt is vicious and cruel, while her uncle is henpecked and weak. Now, Jennie could possibly be turned out, but she resolves to maintain a roof over her head by nursing Quinn back to health.

Jennie is haunted at night by Will's ghost, and it seems that he is desperate to communicate with her from beyond the grave.

There must be something keeping him from crossing over but what? As Jennie tries to uncover the mystery surrounding his death she inadvertently falls into a thick plot of lies and betrayal.

Can Will communicate from beyond and save the girl he once loved? It is a historical novel that recounts the dreadful period of the Civil War.

It is a romance, a mystery and a ghost story all in one. I liked that this book blended all these genres. In order to tell the tale, this book utilizes pictures, illustrations by Lisa Brown.

They are clippings from Jennie's scrapbook and they include: I really loved the way the pictures embellished the book and were an intricate part of the story.

The authors managed to capture the horror and dread of losing loved ones and the desperate attempts of the ones left behind to contact the dead.

In this book, Jennie and Will's family do just that, they contact a medium photographer to try to reach Will on the other side.

This was a common practice during this time period, and in fact the Spiritualist Movement was born from people trying to communicate with the ghosts of the deceased Civil War soldiers.

This was done through mediums, seances and photographers who used deceit and double exposures to create pictures of supposed spirits. I enjoyed learning about the heightened attempts to tap into the spirit world.

I also liked that this book utilized another common practice during this era, and that was to photograph the dead.

Needless to say, this book is a great glimpse into the Civil War time period. I enjoyed following the hapless Jennie, a young sixteen year old girl, who loses her twin brother and her first love to the war.

She is abused by her greedy and cruel aunt and ignored by her uncle. It seems she may be relegated to a servant's life, before fate steps in and offers her another chance at love I loved the thrilling, heart pounding conclusion of this one.

If you like a haunting ghost story, this is a good one to check out. And The Not So Much: Once the story reaches the end, it is a crazy finish, one that may surprise and shock you.

Were there shortages of food and supplies? Did they spend their days nursing the injured? How often did they receive letters and communication from their loved ones serving?

How exactly did her parents die? Her father was killed early on in the war is the only information provided. What was her life like before she lived with her aunt?

Even though he is deceased, he is the main focus of the story. I just wish there were a few more flashbacks that detailed the unfolding of the romance and what his relationship's were like with Jennie and his brother Quinn.

It seemed that this was a game Jennie played with her twin brother before he died, again a few scenes detailing how the game came about would help me to understand the whole spy theme better.

Picture the Dead was a highly entertaining read. It is a dash of mystery, a bit of romance and a ghost story set during the final year of the Civil War.

This is the story of the plucky Jennie, who is trying to save herself from an uncertain future while she attempts to unravel the cryptic messages she is receiving from her dead finance.

The use of pictures makes this a special read. If you are looking for a good ghostly historical mystery, definitely pick this one up!

I was not compensated for my review and all opinions expressed are my own. Posted Rainy Day Ramblings. May 21, Eden Voelker rated it liked it.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I think Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin was an okay book. The novel was hard to follow because it was not very clear on what was happening in the plot.

I feel the ending was the best part of the novel because it was very unpredictable. This novel is about Jennie Lovell and her misfortunes.

There was a secret being kept, as Quinn would roam the house covering all pictures of Will. Aunt Clara decided that the family needed to see Mr.

Geist, who can take images of the dead to relieve pain. After the visit, Jennie kept returning to Geist to try to uncover what actually happened to Will.

During that time, Jennie and Quinn become close, close enough that they announce their engagement. Before the wedding, Quinn finally unveils what actually happened to Will, which ruined the Pritchett family name.

I would recommend this novel to anyone aged 12 and older. I do not think anyone 18 and older would find much interest in this book.

I do recommend this novel, because even though I did not love it, possibly someone else may. Bookish Blog as a part of the blog tour.

I am currently hosting a giveaway for a paperback copy of this book. March 15th Picture the Dead is more than a ghost story. It's a truly masterful, original, and jaw-dropping creation - a work of art.

There's a touch of romance, beautifully described historical setting, goose-bumpy atmosphere, and a thrilling mystery. Above all, there's a skillfully executed, bone-chilling plot line, emotionally engaging first-person narrative, and a totally unexpected yet entirely satisfying conclusion.

Combining Adele Griffin's excellent writing style with Lisa Brown's phenomenal illustrations, Picture the Dead reaches a whole new level of storytelling, taking the reader back in time to the last months of American Civil War.

The deliciously eerie scrapbook-like graphics perfectly complement the plot line, adding flavor and resulting in an unforgettable reading experience.

Be prepared, this book will haunt you long after you turn the last page. In this riveting book, set in 19th-century America - the last two years of American Civil War , we meet sixteen-year old Jennie Lovell, who, after both her parents died and her twin brother was killed on the battlefield, was taken in by her Aunt and Uncle - the parents of her childhood friend and soon-to-be-married fiance, William.

Jennie doesn't have anyone left. She has no other family members to turn to, nor does she have any savings of her own. She's fully dependent on her fiance's family, and when the news about Will's death reach the Pritchett household, Jennie finds herself in a very difficult living situation.

Aunt Clara becomes even more hostile towards her, making it clear that Jennie does not belong there. With no status and nowhere else to go, she tries desperately to prove herself useful to her Aunt and Uncle by performing various household tasks.

She's also caring for Will's brother, Quinn, who returned home seriously injured. Moody and withdrawn, Quinn refuses to speak about his war experiences, nor does he want to talk about Will and what happened to him.

It quickly becomes obvious that he knows more than he lets on. There's an air of mystery surrounding Will's passing, and Jennie is determined to find the truth.

Even if it means doing something unconventional, like, say, trusting in the supernatural and looking beyond the rational to seek answers to her fiance's death.

What she uncovers is so much worse than she ever expected. In this enthralling wonder of a book, Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown managed to create a truly breath-taking and spine-tingling atmosphere, without the book becoming overly creepy or frightening.

Oh yes, it is, but in a very subtle and balanced way. Mystery and supernatural play a big role in this novel, and the delicious Gothic illustrations blend well with the story, enhancing the already powerful, eerie atmosphere.

The amount of thought put into this project is really admirable. Down to the last detail, everything is well thought-out and executed with care: With rich descriptions and accurate language for the time period, Adele Griffin does an excellent job painting a vivid and realistic historical background, and breathing life into the characters.

The landscapes, the city and the Pritchett House are all very well drawn, the dialogues come across as natural and believable, the scrapbook elements add intensity and flavor to the story, the pacing is excellent and, in the end, it all comes together in a way that is nothing short of brilliant.

Not only do we see the suffering of the families affected by the Civil War, but we're also introduced to a fascinating phenomenon of 19th-century Spiritualism - a significant social movement, that was especially popular during the war, when so many lives have been lost, and people would do anything to contact their loved ones one last time.

All in all, this was a very unique and enriching reading experience and one that I won't forget for a long time.

Picture the Dead is a haunting and painfully beautiful tale of love, betrayal, trust, hope, perseverance, death and new beginnings.

Extremely well-written and gorgeously illustrated, it's a fabulous ghost mystery. View all 4 comments. Mar 24, Holly Ryanne rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm very conflicted about rating this and collecting my thoughts and opinions.

I don't believe the synopsis is even an accurate description of what happens. Here, let me try to explain. In Picture the Dead, a young woman is faced with the aftermath of losing almost everyone dear to her.

We start out with the return of her cousin from war , Quinn. In Britain, Audrey Linkman found a similar continuation of post-mortem photography in the inter-war years, indicating the practice was not limited to the Victorian Era in Britain, though she said little about wider Europe.

Post-mortem photography as early as the s was taken up by artists, and continues today. Audrey Linkman, [9] Christopher Townsend [10] and Lauren Summersgill [11] have all researched this particular area of study.

Summersgill argues that artists in America in the s used post-mortem photography to fight against the increasing medicalisation of death.

Personal post-mortem photography is considered to be largely private, with the exception of the public circulation of stillborn children in the charity website Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep [13] and the controversial rise of funeral selfies on phones.

Another popular arrangement was to have the deceased presented seated in a chair or arranged in a portrait to mimic life because these photographs would serve as their last social presence.

The inclusion of the mother, it has been argued, encourages one to see through the mother's eyes: While some images especially tintypes and ambrotypes have a rosy tint added to the cheeks of the corpse, it is untrue that metal stands and other devices were used to pose the dead as though they were living.

While 19th-century people may have wished their loved ones to look their best in a memorial photograph, evidence of a metal stand should be understood as proof that the subject was a living person.

Later photographic examples show the subject in a coffin. Some very late examples show the deceased in a coffin with a large group of funeral attendees; this type of photograph was especially popular in Europe and less common in the United States.

As noted above, post-mortem photography is still practised and is common in America among women who experienced stillbirth ; commemorated on websites such as "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep".

It is believed that the post-mortem photography died out in the Nordic countries around When examining Iceland 's culture surrounding death, it is concluded that the nation held death as an important and significant companion.

Consequently, death was a public topic that was considerably seen through Icelanders' religious lenses.

There are many that believe Iceland's attitudes about post-mortem photography can be drawn out from its earlier attitudes about death. In the early s, it wasn't uncommon to read a local newspaper's obituary section and find detailed information regarding an individual's death, including instances where suicide occurred.

How post-mortem photography began in Iceland remains uncertain, but these photographs can be traced to the late nineteenth century.

Post-mortem photography was particularly popular in Victorian Britain. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article has multiple issues.

The nature of the afterlife which the dead person enjoyed is difficult to define, because of the differing traditions within Ancient Egyptian religion.

In the Book of the Dead , the dead were taken into the presence of the god Osiris , who was confined to the subterranean Duat.

There are also spells to enable the ba or akh of the dead to join Ra as he travelled the sky in his sun-barque, and help him fight off Apep.

There are fields, crops, oxen, people and waterways. The deceased person is shown encountering the Great Ennead , a group of gods, as well as his or her own parents.

While the depiction of the Field of Reeds is pleasant and plentiful, it is also clear that manual labour is required. For this reason burials included a number of statuettes named shabti , or later ushebti.

These statuettes were inscribed with a spell, also included in the Book of the Dead , requiring them to undertake any manual labour that might be the owner's duty in the afterlife.

The path to the afterlife as laid out in the Book of the Dead was a difficult one. The deceased was required to pass a series of gates, caverns and mounds guarded by supernatural creatures.

Their names—for instance, "He who lives on snakes" or "He who dances in blood"—are equally grotesque. These creatures had to be pacified by reciting the appropriate spells included in the Book of the Dead ; once pacified they posed no further threat, and could even extend their protection to the dead person.

If all the obstacles of the Duat could be negotiated, the deceased would be judged in the "Weighing of the Heart" ritual, depicted in Spell The deceased was led by the god Anubis into the presence of Osiris.

There, the dead person swore that he had not committed any sin from a list of 42 sins , [44] reciting a text known as the "Negative Confession".

Then the dead person's heart was weighed on a pair of scales, against the goddess Maat , who embodied truth and justice. Maat was often represented by an ostrich feather, the hieroglyphic sign for her name.

If the scales balanced, this meant the deceased had led a good life. Anubis would take them to Osiris and they would find their place in the afterlife, becoming maa-kheru , meaning "vindicated" or "true of voice".

This scene is remarkable not only for its vividness but as one of the few parts of the Book of the Dead with any explicit moral content.

The judgment of the dead and the Negative Confession were a representation of the conventional moral code which governed Egyptian society.

For every "I have not John Taylor points out the wording of Spells 30B and suggests a pragmatic approach to morality; by preventing the heart from contradicting him with any inconvenient truths, it seems that the deceased could enter the afterlife even if their life had not been entirely pure.

A Book of the Dead papyrus was produced to order by scribes. They were commissioned by people in preparation for their own funeral, or by the relatives of someone recently deceased.

They were expensive items; one source gives the price of a Book of the Dead scroll as one deben of silver, [51] perhaps half the annual pay of a labourer.

In one case, a Book of the Dead was written on second-hand papyrus. Most owners of the Book of the Dead were evidently part of the social elite; they were initially reserved for the royal family, but later papyri are found in the tombs of scribes, priests and officials.

Most owners were men, and generally the vignettes included the owner's wife as well. Towards the beginning of the history of the Book of the Dead , there are roughly 10 copies belonging to men for every one for a woman.

The dimensions of a Book of the Dead could vary widely; the longest is 40m long while some are as short as 1m. The scribes working on Book of the Dead papyri took more care over their work than those working on more mundane texts; care was taken to frame the text within margins, and to avoid writing on the joints between sheets.

The words peret em heru , or 'coming forth by day' sometimes appear on the reverse of the outer margin, perhaps acting as a label. Books were often prefabricated in funerary workshops, with spaces being left for the name of the deceased to be written in later.

The text of a New Kingdom Book of the Dead was typically written in cursive hieroglyphs , most often from left to right, but also sometimes from right to left.

The hieroglyphs were in columns, which were separated by black lines — a similar arrangement to that used when hieroglyphs were carved on tomb walls or monuments.

Illustrations were put in frames above, below, or between the columns of text. The largest illustrations took up a full page of papyrus.

From the 21st Dynasty onward, more copies of the Book of the Dead are found in hieratic script. The calligraphy is similar to that of other hieratic manuscripts of the New Kingdom; the text is written in horizontal lines across wide columns often the column size corresponds to the size of the papyrus sheets of which a scroll is made up.

Occasionally a hieratic Book of the Dead contains captions in hieroglyphic. The text of a Book of the Dead was written in both black and red ink, regardless of whether it was in hieroglyphic or hieratic script.

Most of the text was in black, with red ink used for the titles of spells, opening and closing sections of spells, the instructions to perform spells correctly in rituals, and also for the names of dangerous creatures such as the demon Apep.

While Clams casino im god spotify saw the plot twist coming since, uh, the first few argosy casino poker room of the book, the potential to have a character who did awful things ff 10 rustung mit 4 freien slots reasons both legitimate and terribly contrived, who felt conflicted and confused and was selfish but also human was really intriguing!
