Today, eighteen Butterfly Man armoires (ca. 1815) are documented as having been made in the same New Orleans workshop. While their maker's identity remains a mystery, his cabinets represent the zenith of craftsmanship in early nineteenth-century Louisiana. In order to contextualize the Butterfly Man's story, this study explores the history and use of the armoire in Europe and Louisiana and considers early nineteenth-century cabinetmaking in New Orleans. Who were the early cabinetmakers and where were they from? What was their place in the social fabric of New Orleans? What were the Butterfly Man's influences and how do his armoires reflect them? Who might the Butterfly Man have been?Chasing the Butterfly Man: The Search for a Lost New Orleans Cabinetmaker, 1810-1825, written by New Orleans art historian Cybèle Gontar and published by the Louisiana Museum Foundation, is the first comprehensive exploration of this New Orleans cabinetmaker, his construction methods, and the on-going search for his identity.

In this “deeply personal and lyrical book” (Publishers Weekly) from the New York Times bestselling author of The Horse, Wendy Williams explores the lives of one of the world’s most resilient creatures—the butterfly—shedding light on the role that they play in our ecosystem and in our human lives. “[A] glorious and exuberant celebration of these biological flying machines…Williams takes us on a humorous and beautifully crafted journey” (The Washington Post). From butterfly gardens to zoo exhibits, these “flying flowers” are one of the few insects we’ve encouraged to infiltrate our lives. Yet, what has drawn us to these creatures in the first place? And what are their lives really like? In this “entertaining look at ‘the world’s favorite insect’” (Booklist, starred review), New York Times bestselling author and science journalist Wendy Williams reveals the inner lives of these delicate creatures, who are far more intelligent and tougher than we give them credit for. Monarch butterflies migrate thousands of miles each year from Canada to Mexico. Other species have learned how to fool ants into taking care of them. Butterflies’ scales are inspiring researchers to create new life-saving medical technology. Williams takes readers to butterfly habitats across the globe and introduces us to not only various species, but “digs deeply into the lives of both butterflies and [the] scientists” (Science magazine) who have spent decades studying them. Coupled with years of research and knowledge gained from experts in the field, this accessible “butterfly biography” explores the ancient partnership between these special creatures and humans, and why they continue to fascinate us today. “Informative, thought-provoking,” (BookPage, starred review) and extremely profound, The Language of Butterflies is a “fascinating book [that] will be of interest to anyone who has ever admired a butterfly, and anyone who cares about preserving these stunning creatures” (Library Journal).

At the age of five, British writer and naturalist Peter Marren had what he refers to as his Nabokov moment, catching a butterfly and feeling its dust between his fingers. As he writes, The hands of 5-year-olds are damp and clumsy. When the butterfly slithered and shot out from between my fingers, I noticed that some of its colours had been left behind on my sweaty palm, like the imprint of a chalk drawing. I held my hand up to the sun and watched the particles shine and flicker: orange, yellow and black, in shimmery, summery specks....Of all the inconsequential things that happened to me when I was 5 falling down the rockery, piling cold Yorkshire sand into my Mickey Mouse bucket, sniveling over my uneatable school dinner this one stays bright after all the others have faded... It was a Nabokov Moment because only he could put into words what most of us can only feel: the frankly sensual moment in a child s life when the full force of nature is felt for the first time. It marks the first time when, to your vast surprise, the colours and scents and sounds of the natural world seem to imprint themselves inside you . Rainbow Dust celebrates the role that butterflies have played in engaging humans in the wonders of the natural worldin collecting, in taxonomy, and more recently in conservation. Mr. Marren is a gifted storyteller, and he in this literary net he captures the joy of discovery, the challenges of taxonomy, and the perils of climate change."
