Richard Sexton's exquisite photographs and Randolph Delehanty's astute historical musings combine to make a marvelous literary gumbo. Sexton and Delehanty successfully capture the essence of contemporary New Orleans. From the semi-tropical climate and the "unabashed display of ruined finery" to the French influences and African-American culture, the writer and photographer admirably show not only "how New Orleans is different from other places, but wh. Sexton and Delehanty are especially to be commended for not giving us some airy, ultra-polished style book.

After a trip to New Orleans, I searched in vain for a book about the architecture of the city, which was just gorgeous. Nothing was available in the gift shops and souvenir shops, surprisingly. So I came home and bought this one from Amazon. It's a bit dated, but it has pretty much what I was looking for: beautiful photos and explanations of the history and style of this unique city. Maybe the shops should pick this one up as an item to sell.
My interest was exterior architecture, which this book has, but it also includes interiors and a whole section on Mardi Gras. I would have preferred more on the exterior, but I am glad to have bought this one as a "souvenir" of my stay.

What can I say? Any book even MENtioning my great former Galveston-era friend Joel Dyer and his Victorian design savvy is of great interest to me.
And I was thrilled to see another antique framed poster of a New Orleans Mardi Gras krewe's tableau (parade float illustrations) like the one I found folded up in a Galveston junk shop in the early '80s. I'm proud that newspaper insert hangs in my dining room.
If only my l'il darling pooch, kd, hadn't chosen to chew a good part of the book's cover! I believe the book's out of print (or is it?).

This is a beautiful, thoughtfully done book that transported me back to New Orleans, where I love to visit and have never had the good luck to live. It's a soulful place full of creative approaches to living and this book is a tribute to that.
JUST DO IT
As a former resident of New Orleans I have many books on the city.
This is one of my favorite so far as photographs of New Orleans, inside and out.
Beautiful photography, brilliant colour and great subject matter make this book a must have for those who love New Orleans.

This book is also a great gift for anyone. I never tire of looking at it! It has a history of the city in the foremost part of the book that adds to it's attraction.

Just a great book!

This rating is not for the book but for the disappointment of not getting what I thought I ordered, and an attempt to keep others from the same disappointment.
I read some of the reviews, clicked on the "look inside" and then bought this book. I thought I would get the book I looked at when I "looked inside". NO. That is not what you get. When you click on "look inside" you get to see the hardcover 2003 version. It appears to be written by a different person than the paperback 1990's version you will get if you buy this one, though the photographer is the same. Though I haven't looked deeply yet, some of the pictures appear to be different between the two, and as noted the writer appears to be different. There is a small disclaimer at the top of "look inside" that tells you you won't get the book you are looking at when you order, but I didn't notice it until now, as I am trying to figure out why I didn't get the book I thought I was getting. So, be sure to be aware which book you are ordering and don't be fooled by the "look inside" option. If you want the hardcover, be sure that is what you are ordering, or you will end up with a paperback that is about ten years older than the hard cover. Also note they are both pre Katrina. I gave it four stars because I didn't want to drag down the books overall rating when I'm not reviewing the book itself, just trying to clarify what you will get if you order and wanted to warn people who don't read all the fine print, like myself.

This is more than a guide book about an interesting city. She gives a lot of information on where to find things that you never even knew you were interested in, since reading it I've ordered five different books mentioned, from STORYVILLE to Scott Joplin to the history of mansions on St Charles Avenue. It's a wonderful book

I've loved this book for years and always wanted a copy of my own, so I was very pleased to get a terrific used copy at a good price.
There is no place as special as New Orleans on earth and this book does total justice to it. I was fortunate enough to live in New Orleans for 8 months while my fiancé was temporarily sent there by the Corporate office. For those who have never been, you must see it. It is so full of life, and music and history. I have no other word for it then magical, as if you have found a way to go back in time. From the excellent food (which is not all creole) but anything you could imagine or want, to the rich history of the French Quarter and the Garden District, to the ruins of the old plantations. I could not have loved it all more, nor missed it more deeply. Now, with this book, it all comes back as if I am still there. It is a beautiful book, suitable for any coffee table. Gorgeous color photographs. I have many books, on many subjects, but this one..by far...is my absolute favorite. One day I hope I can return to New Orleans for good, until then I have this very special book.
