...

Dazzling and memorable, colorful and stunningly detailed, Andrea Mistretta's series of Mardi Gras posters has become a time-honored annual tradition in the course of its twenty-five-year presence in New Orleans. Published and distributed every year in the Crescent City, the airbrushed artworks embody the spirit of Carnival with their flamboyant colors, eye-catching designs, and layers of meaning.
Collected for the first time in one volume, these posters have reached well beyond New Orleans to touch a global audience, from serving as dï¿1/2cor for NATO's annual holiday celebration in Brussels to brightening the stage set of Wheel of Fortune. The Big Easy Concert for Katrina in New York City, Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando, the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, and the Magic Castle in Hollywood represent only a handful of the places these posters have been featured.
Created for lovers of New Orleans, art collectors, and Mardi Gras aficionados, this book is for any and all who love to revel in the vibrant color of life.
