Willard F. Clark was a printmaker and artist who greatly shaped the way the rest of the world views old-time Santa Fe, New Mexico. Born in 1910 in Boston, he grew up in Argentina, and studied art during the summers in New York City at Grand Central Station Art School and the Hawthorn Art Academy. In 1928, on his way to California, he stopped in Santa Fe, New Mexico and fell in love with the majestic landscape of the American Southwest. There he started a small print shop and taught himself the craft of printing, cutting his own woodblocks, setting type, and binding small books. Willard Clark developed a graphic style that came to represent early Twentieth-century Santa Fe to many around the world.

Stories in Stone provides history along with images of a wide variety of common and not-so-common cemetery symbols, and offers an in-depth examination of stone relics and the personal and intimate details they display-flora and fauna, religious icons, society symbols, and final impressions of how the deceased wished to be remembered. Douglas Keister has created a practical field guide that is compact and portable, perfect for those interested in family histories and genealogical research, and is the only book of its kind that unlocks the language of symbols in a comprehensive and easy-to-understand manner.

Douglas Keister has photographed fourteen award-winning, critically acclaimed books (including Red Tile Style: America's Spanish Revival Architecture, The Bungalow: America's Arts & Crafts Home, and Storybook Style: America's Whimsical Homes of the Twenties) earning him the title "America's most noted photographer of historic architecture." He also writes and illustrates magazine articles and contributes photographs and essays to other books, calendars, posters, and greeting cards. Doug lives in Chico, California, and travels frequently to photograph and lecture on historic architecture and photography.
