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

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.
