Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

If you're going to Paris, chances are you'll drop by Notre-Dame. And if you're going to Notre-Dame, your experience can be significantly enriched by spending a while with Alain Erlande-Brandenburg's Notre-Dame de Paris and Caroline Rose's photography. Get comfortable, pour yourself a glass of wine, and settle into the history, design, and interior of one of man's greatest monuments to God. From the 4th-century cathedral to the exquisite iconography of the western facade's portrayal of the Last Judgment, it's a structure deeply deserving of the loving treatment Erlande- Brandenburg and Rose bestow. And when you're there in the flesh, you'll appreciate the flying buttresses and stained-glass windows better for every picture detail and insightful note you studied before you left. --Stephanie Gold --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal

Abradale strikes again with another beautiful volume at a more reasonable price. Published at $75 in 1997, this is both an architectural and historical/social portrait of the great Parisian cathedral. The text is buttressed with numerous illustrations as well as simply stunning photographs by noted architectural photographer Caroline Rose. This offers a rich history with tremendous browse appeal. If this volume's original price was too prohibitive, now's the time to buy.

I have had this book on my list since visiting Notre-Dame while in Paris in July of 2010. I have seen it listed off and on in the past couple of year, but averaging around $60.00 and going up to $175.00 for a used edition. The book I purchased was very reasonable ($38.00), in really good condition, and I received it promptly. I'm thrilled to have it! Very satisfied with the seller - definitely would recommend them!

This book is amazing. It is filled with history, design plans, and changes brought about by renovation and additions. I can not imagine finding a better book on Notre Dame then this one. I am going to Paris once again next month and this book has given me a new perception and ability to understaff and appreciate even more the beauty and genius of Note Dame.

The seller gave me excellent service and the book was delivered three weeks in advance of the scheduled delivery date. This book was advertised as "used". It is hard to believe that when you look at the book. What a tremendous value for the price.

I can't criticize the content about the building itself. That's great but there are no mentions that I can find of the gorgeous paintings inside. They are exquisite! Also the pope's treasury (not sure if that 's the right name) is very interesting also. There's a hand painted cabinet in that section that is all about a certain king. That was the best in the whole collection and by far more interesting than all the jewels. It made the cost of seeing this extra section worth all the money to me. When I search the internet I can find only one image off the cabinet. Why didn't I take more pictures of it?!? So my search will continue. I want to know more about this part of the church.
