Notre-Dame de Paris : History, Art, and Revival from 1163 to Tomorrow
by Antonia Felix


Overview - This stunning photographic ode to one of the world's most beloved treasures pays tribute to Notre-Dame--its place in history and in 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 openly 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.
