"A Day at Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte is a gorgeous photobook which has 170 color photographs, many of which highlight interesting details that you might miss on a regular visit to the chateau. In addition to some pretty stunning photography, the book delves into the history of the estate, from Fouquet through its modern-day managers, who actually grew up on the estate. . . Yet A Day at Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte book is more than a charming photobook with history to share: it is a moving tribute to Vaux-le-Vicomte itself. At the end of the book I found myself not just knowing so much more about the chateau, but caring about it in a way I hadn't before."

But it's the book's enchanting photos that are the real draw here, giving readers a glimpse of Fouquet's magnificent creation.
