This spectacular collection of photographs takes the viewer on a stroll through the heart of Madison, around the Capitol Square and down renowned State Street, with stops at some of the most recent additions to the city's skyline, including the Monona Terrace Convention Center (original design by Frank Lloyd Wright) and the Overture Center for the Arts. Then it's on toward the University of Wisconsin campus, with its historic buildings, walkways, and the Memorial Union Terrace, one of the city's best-known spots for students and locals to meet, eat and listen to live music. The tour continues through Madison's diverse neighborhoods, visiting numerous ethnic restaurants, music festivals and the one Madison's most famous attractions, the Dane County Farmers' Market. The visual journey finishes with visits to the breathtaking parks and gardens scattered throughout the city.

Zane Williams is also the author of the photography books "Wisconsin," the official book of Wisconsin's Sesquicentennial in 1998 and "Doubletake - A Rephotographic Survey of Madison, Wisconsin." The Wisconsin Historical Society Press book "Wisconsin's Own: Twenty Remarkable Homes" features the photography of Williams. Williams lives with his wife Mary in the historic heart of downtown Madison, a few blocks from the Capitol Square.

"If you're looking for a way to share some of the beauty and excitement with friends or Madison ex-patriots, the photo book 'Madison' by talented Madison photographer Zane Williams is as good as it gets. ... From The Overture Center to Vilas Park Zoo, from Halloween on State Street to football at Camp Randall, he gets it right. If you want a book that truly captures the soul of Madison, this is it." —Gary Knowles, "Dane County Lifestyles"

"As a journalist who has written about Madison for 30 years now, I am often asked what it is about this city that makes it so special to so many people. There has never been a short answer — until now. Zane Williams' wonderful new book of photographs captures Madison in all its diversity and vitality and its quiet moments too." —Doug Moe, "The Capital Times"
