Sights of Old Québec

Présentation

Books abound on Old Québec. This one stands out in its presentation and original perspective of unique and unsuspected nooks and vistas seen from bell towers, rooftops, stairways, wharves, fortifications, archeological digs, archways. More than a tourist guide these drawings, sketches and watercolours are an artist’s expression of surprising panoramas and intriguing details such as weathervanes, steeple cocks, latrines, cul-de-poule walls, and those eerily barred “étripe-chats” windows. This is a personal vision of the city that combines maritime landscape with military past and architectural richness.
