    This is one of my most favorite coffee table books ever. I'm a huge fan of decrepit architecture, peeling paint, and the patina that comes with age. I also love really eclectic interiors that come from using found objects and loved objects. This book presents plenty of all of the above. Its a real taste of some of what the Crescent City had, and still has.

    I would give this book about my favourite city in the world five stars if it were republished with a few more colourful anecdotes to fill out the history and 500 more pages of photographs of elegant decay. Or more.

    Beautifully illustrated book that gives you sense of "elegance and decadence" of historic New Orleans, one of the most unique cities in the world.
