Sights Of Old Québec
|Disponibilité en librairie :||Quantité|
Books abound on Vieux-Québec. This one stands out in its presentation and original perspective of unique and unsuspected nooks and vistas that includes bell towers, rooftop views, stairways, wharves, fortifications, archeological digs, archways. More than a tourist guide these images, sketches and watercolours are an artist’s expression of surprising panoramas and intriguing details, unusual offerings of weathervanes, steeplecocks, latrines, cul-de-poule walls, and those eerily barred “étripe-chats” windows. This is a personal vision of the city that combines a maritime landscape with a military past and architectural richness.
