New Orleans’ Literary Landmark: Hotel Monteleone
64 Pages | 6 x 10 Hardcover
Hotel Monteleone is designated an official Literary Landmark by the Friends of the Library Association. The famous authors who stayed at the hotel and used it as their muse include Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, and William Faulkner among many others. In order to celebrate this designation the hotel wanted to produce a book which collected information on all the authors with connections to the hotel as well as using excerpts from their work when the hotel was mentioned. The hardbound cloth covered book with dust jacket was 64 pages and printed in four color throughout. Several collage illustrations were also created for the book to illustrate the excerpts from novels and short stories which featured the Hotel Monteleone. The book was used as a corporate gift, sold in the hotel gift shop and a copy of the book is placed in each room for guests to read during their stay.
