Brent Nicastro showcases the dynamic power, energy, and sheer beauty of Madison in this book of photography. Since the 1970s, Nicastro has been photographing the splendor of Madison, and his feel for his home is never more evident than in these images of the Dane County Farmers’ Market, the State Capitol building, the University of Wisconsin campus in all seasons, football at Camp Randall Stadium and basketball at the Kohl Center, the Monona Terrace Convention and Community Center designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Memorial Union Terrace, Picnic Point, and many more landmarks that evoke Madison’s charm.
    Accompanying each image are captions in four languages—English, German, Spanish, and Chinese—making this book a perfect gift volume for all who love Madison. Visitors, students, and lifelong residents will savor this photographic portrait of beautiful Madison, Wisconsin.
