It isn't difficult to understand why Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr. called Jack Alterman's coffee table book "the best Charleston photographic essay ever." Its more than 150 striking photographs, which capture the city's famed steeples, serene waters, and colorful houses, will have you flipping the pages for hours, pausing to take in each new image. Most impressively, it leaves you with a deep and varied understanding of The Holy City in a way that only a visit can. Browse through this gallery for a few of our favorite photos.
