Book of Remembrance
This is a relatively inexpensive and perpetual form of memorial which allows the name of the deceased and a suitable epitaph to be recorded. A page is turned each day of the year, thereby being open for viewing on each anniversary of the date of death. Provided the book is not with the calligrapher for updating, pages can be turned for viewing at other times by request.
