Notre Dame De Paris

NotreNotre-Dame de Paris The Eternal Cathedral

The cathedral of Notre Dame is an incredible feat of architecture. The hearts of many people across the world sank as we watched news videos of it burning. Fortunately the beauty of this magnificent structure is preserved in photographs. Claude Gauvard and Joël Laiter have teamed up to present Notre Dame in her historical glory in detailed pictures with historical facts that bring her to life.

Full color photos show the intricate details of this grand lady while historical narrative tells her tale. A must have addition to the library of lovers of France, architecture and history.


Notre-Dame de Paris, for 800 years the heart and soul of the City of Lights, was ravaged by fire in April 2019. Since then, people from all over the world have rallied to help restore this extraordinary place.

To participate in this effort, E/P/A is reissuing Notre-Dame de Paris: The Eternal Cathedral and will contribute a portion of sales to its reconstruction.

With glorious, detailed color photographs and many historical illustrations, this book is expertly written by a noted French historian and will be for many a keepsake of this place of universal devotion.
