Goodreads Book Giveaway #4

Put on a big hat and sip a mint julep while reading this beautiful book full of photos of Louisville. To enter, click on the "Enter to win" button below or look under the giveaways section on Goodreads. Winners will be selected in late April.

OLD LOUISVILLE is written by Louisville-based author, David Dominé, and is illustrated with beautiful photographs by the photographer/stylist/writer team duo, Franklin and Esther Schmidt. OLD LOUISVILLE is a lavishly illustrated history and guide to a famous Louisville, Kentucky neighborhood.

An intimate tour of one of the largest and most significant historic preservation districts in America, OLD LOUISVILLE features fifty residential designs, from grand mansions to cozy cottages, from familiar house museums and boutique hotel adaptations to private homes of charm and sophistication. Located just south of Louisville’s business district, Old Louisville arose from the expansive grounds where the great Southern Exposition amazed and inspired visitors from 1883 to 1887. Many of these residences have never been open to the public.

In 2013, Louisville, Kentucky topped Lonely Planet’s Top 10 U.S. Destinations. “Louisville may just be the new Portland, Oregon,” according to Lonely Planet’s U.S. travel editor, Robert Reid.

David Dominé is also the author of GHOSTS OF OLD LOUISVILLE (McClanahan Publishing House, Inc.). He writes travel pieces and food reviews for various local and national publications. Franklin and Esther Schmidt specialize in interior, landscape, and exterior photography. They shoot for art, decorating, historic, and travel magazines. This is their fifth heavily illustrated, large-format book. The book is published by Golden Coast Publishing Company and distributed by the University of Georgia Press.
