The Golden Age of Carnival artistry began in the 1870's. Ball invitations, dance cards, and admit cards reflected exalted themes drawn from mythology, epic literature, religion, and whimsy. Presented in this collection are nearly two hundred dazzling examples, most of them reproduced here for the first time. Henri Schindler, a native of New Orleans, is the acclaimed designer of Mardi Gras parades and balls for some of the city's most eminent societies. He is highly regarded among Carnival historians for his knowledge of the festival's history and for his collection of memorabilia.
