Jackson Squared

Jackson Squared


“Does anyone else smell beignets?”


Tom Varisco documents a year in the life of the French Quarter’s Jackson Square with lively, outrageous and humorous photos and essays. Standing in the square next to Ole Hickory, you’ll meet musicians, artists, tourists and oddballs of every stripe. The book is an irreverent celebration of one of America’s most famous destinations.

Tom Varisco is the creator of Spoiled, a photo book of Hurricane Katrina refrigerator art, and Signs of New Orleans, a record of the city’s colorful street signs.

Jackson Squared includes a foreword by John Biguenet, author of seven books including the novel Oyster and the short-story collection The Torturer’s Apprentice: Stories.
