Overview

This sixth volume in the Majesty series promises to thrill would-be photographers who dream of preserving the stately images of this classic city on film. A full-color collection of striking interiors and exteriors that can fit easily in a backpack, purse, or briefcase, The Majesty of Savannah is the only photographic collection of the city in its size and price range.

Pelican Publishing Companyís popular photographic and architectural Majesty series has traveled from its midsouthern base of Mississippi, Louisiana, and Tennessee to the east coast of Georgia, focusing its lens on another southern belle - the romantic port city of Savannah. Historian John Duncan reminisces of the city, "To the fast-paced outsider, the town might be a place of live oaks and dead people, but here the past is not past - it is very much alive."

Master photographer Peter Beneyís goal in creating this full-color compendium, The Majesty of Savannah , was to bring the past to life by capturing the unique and ever-copied architecture of the homes, offices, and monuments that overlook the skillfully designed, lush green squares in the heart of the city. He shows visitors and locals up-close details not seen from street level and invitation-only interiors, some re-creations, others continued preservation, of the slow and charmed lifestyle of the South.
