The fabulous, beguiling images of this book (many of which were unearthed by Mr. Schindler, and seen by New Orleanians - and the world - for the first time when this book was published) compliment - at times manage to compete - with Mr. Schindler's poetic and witty prose.
Never before has the subject of Mardi Gras in New Orleans been treated with the thorough scholarship and research that this volume displays. Make no mistake, however. While the scholarship and historical detail of this book are unimpeachable, this is no dry academic work. It reads as effervescently as the gilded papier-mache' chariots it celebrates. This book for New Orleanians is a validation. For those unfamiliar with the city or it's great festival, this book is a revelation.
For the Artist and the Esthete this inestimable book is a treasure.
