Notre-Dame de Paris

by Antonia Felix | 14 November 2019
Hardback
This stunning photographic tribute to one of the world's most loved treasures pays tribute to Notre-Dame - its place in history and culture and its rebirth - in the wake of the tragic fire that nearly destroyed it. With its spectacular rose windows, majestic spire, soaring vaults, twin bell towers and massive pipe organ, the gothic cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris has long stood as a symbol of that city; people wept as fire swept through the iconic building in April 2019, which sustained colossal damage. In stunning photographs, this volume celebrates Notre-Dame through the ages: its beginnings in 1160 and construction during the Middle Ages; its survival through the French Revolution and two World Wars; its coronations (including Napoleon's), royal weddings and presidential funerals; its resurgence after the publication of Victor Hugo's novel 'The Hunchback of Notre-Dame'; its magnificent relics and artwork; its portrayal by artists through time; and, finally, its recent near-destruction and the miraculous efforts to save it and restore it to its former glory and beyond.
