The Majesty Of New Orleans

Authors:   

Description for THE MAJESTY OF NEW ORLEANS photography by Paul Malone and text by Lee Malone:

Always under the threat of floods, hurricanes, and disease, the original settlers of the city of New Orleans faced many hardships just to survive in a place many considered uninhabitable. Now, nearly three hundred years later, their undertaking along the Mississippi River has actually developed into what authors Lee and Paul Malone describe as "a city of captivating contrasts."

Captured in full color, the highlights and secret beauty of the Crescent City shine in THE MAJESTY OF NEW ORLEANS. The book's combination of history and photography introduces readers to New Orleans at its best. From the Napoleon House of the French Quarter to the Marks Isaacs Mansion in Uptown to the outlying cemeteries, the Malones take you on a tour of the finest architecture, ironwork, patios, and courtyards of New Orleans.

THE MAJESTY OF NEW ORLEANS builds on the popular success of the Malones' other works of text and photographs, THE MAJESTY OF THE FELICIANAS, THE MAJESTY OF THE RIVER ROAD, THE MAJESTY OF THE GARDEN DISTRICT, and LOUISIANA PLANTATION HOMES: A RETURN TO SPLENDOR.

Paul Malone was a well-known photographer and member of the Professional Photographers of America. Lee Malone has written the text that accompanies Paul's photos in all five of their books.
