Our book headstones are a contemporary gravestone design, cut and polished from solid granite in the form of an open book. A tapered roof can be added to the book shaped headstones, memorial inscriptions can be engraved to either page of the book along with a variety of ceramic photos for headstones, which complements this particular gravestone design very well.
The Book of Life
In general, an open book gravestone symbolizes the book of life. In this book, God holds the names of every person who is destined for Heaven or the world to come. For instance, in revelation, the book of life is described as “a book from which believers will never be removed” (Rev 3:5). So we can take comfort in knowing the salvation of our loved ones is secure and their eternity is with Christ.
Although book tombstones can be used to pay tribute to one individual person, they are generally memorialized for two or more people. For example, a father and mother’s inscription along with a photograph for each parent fits very comfortably on our memorial books. With this in mind, each parent would have their own commemoration on a page. Subsequently, a headstone epitaph or memorial verse for both parents can be inscribed on the sub-base below the book. By comparison, if the gravestone is for a single person then a memorial poem or a gravestone cross can be engraved on the opposite page. Given these points, just let us know what your requirements are and our experienced sales team will help and advise you based on your needs.
