The exquisite antebellum mansions of the Garden District. Giant oaks stretching across boulevards and back in time to before the Civil War. The decadence of Bourbon Street. The vibrant sounds of jazz, blues, and Cajun music coming from every doorway or right from the street. Lacy iron balconies that wrap around the historic buildings of the French Quarter. A leisurely meal under a canopy of wisteria.

In vibrant watercolors and detailed sketches, artist Diana Gessler captures the unique charm that makes New Orleans alluring: Mardi Gras, the Cabildo, Jackson Square, the Court of the Two Sisters, St. Louis Cemetery, the Jazz Festival, the River Road Plantations, the Cajun country, sumptuous Creole cuisine, and Audubon's Aquarium of the Americas. In fascinating detail--on everything from the making of Mardi Gras, Napolean's death mask, the city's inspired architectural and garden designs, and favorite author hangouts to famous New Orleanians and Aunt Sally's Creole pralines-- Very New Orleans celebrates the city, the Cajun country, the people, and our history
