Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Five hundred stunning duotone photographs showcase the finest, most majestic, and interesting examples of architecture in one of the world's most beloved cities

The greatest buildings, monuments, and structures of Paris come to life in these inspiring, neighborhood-by-neighborhood photographic tours. Each building is featured in a rich, fine-resolution duotone photograph. Information including the building's name, its address and location, and year of completion or renovation is included underneath the image. A brief description of each building, which highlights its distinctive features and places it in historical context, is included at the back of the book.

Book News Annotation:

A Washington, DC writer who lived in Paris while researching this book provides a historical overview of the city and its 20 arrondissements. Organized by these neighborhoods, the 6.5 x 7.5 " book includes b&w photographs showcasing landmark and lesser-known buildings, maps, and a gazetteer of the museums, churches, hotels, cafés, private homes, political party headquarters, and other buildings. Driscoll is an American photographer; Brockmann is based in Geneva, Switzerland. The work is a reprint of the 2003 edition. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
