Here, in magnificent panoramic color, are Amboise ans Azay-le-Rideau, Chambord and Chinon, Chaumont and Chenonceaux - to name only six of the twenty-five castles and palaces illustrated in this sumptuous book that were built in the vlley of the Loire River by French royalty and nobility during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The chateaux have been endlessly celebrated, but never before have they been immortalized in color photographs of such beauty, which will make this gorgeous book as much a landmark as the chateaux themselves. Word and image match the drama of each chateau's past to the details of its architecture and its regional context, evoking history's parade of royalty and peasantry, merchants and armies. Includes 112 full-color illustrations.
