"The mysteries of the French Quarter have yielded themselves to Kerri's camera like uncorked perfumes. What kind of camera does she have? There is a mystery-uncorking, poetry-uncapping, surprise-producing mechanism inside it. Kodak doesn't make it. There is only one such instrument, and I am grateful that Kerri owns it. The French Quarter is grateful, too. The old coquette never had it so good."

"McCaffety knows how to capture the fleeting beauty of a moment."
-Times-Picayune

Compiled from Kerri McCaffety's companion volume, The Majesty of the French Quarter, the striking images that grace these postcards and notecards include such familiar sights as St. Louis Cathedral and Antoine's restaurant, as well as rare glimpses of hidden courtyards and secluded interiors.
