New Orleans: Elegance and Decadence

by

New Orleans: Elegance and Decadence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The lush, seductive, Old World elegance of New Orleans is gloriously revealed in this photographic tribute to the "Venice of North America." Richard Sexton's photographs capture balcony-lined streets, French-style parks, Caribbean-inspired gardens, and ornate public buildings, and take us inside some of the city's most intriguing private homes.

"Rarely," wrote The New Orleans Times-Picayune, "has the city been loved both so wisely and so well." A tribute to a lifestyle of insouciance and exuberance, touched by both spirituality and worldliness, New Orleans: Elegance and Decadence illuminates both the public face and the private soul of a perennially fascinating city. More than 200 full-color photographs and an insightful text capture the stories and characters of yore.

Review:

"This is a beautiful introduction to the multicultural art and architecture of the 'Crescent City'....This book will entice anyone to visit New Orleans and will serve as pleasant reflection for those who have." Library Journal

Book News Annotation:

A stunning celebration of the city. An aesthetic delight. The 230 color photos of architecture, gardens, and interiors are sensual and vibrant; the text is insightful and well-researched. 10x10"
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
