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.

From USA Today bestselling author Ellie Ashe... Miranda Vaughn has spent the last year and a half fighting for her freedom. Arrested for a fraud scheme involving her supervisors, she's lost her job at a prestigious investment firm, her fiancé, and her reputation. She walks out of the courtroom a free woman, only to find that life has a few more curve balls to throw her way. The jury may have found her not guilty, but Miranda is broke, in debt to her beloved aunt, and can't find a job because of the cloud of suspicion still swirling around her. She's not going to be able to move forward with her life until she finds out who set her up. Buried in the evidence against her, Miranda finds a larger scheme, one involving far more money than the $37 million her boss fleeced from unsuspecting investors.

When the danger heats up, Miranda finds herself in a race against time to find the person behind it all. Before he finds her...
