For the armchair traveler and for all those who claim a small part of this magnificent city as their own, this book is a lovely reminder of the splendor, charm, and sophistication that is Paris. When we think of Paris, the images immediately follow—breathtaking palaces, boulevards stretching on forever, the stately flow of the Seine, and the lively bistros and brasseries. In Paris, the magnificent sweep of history is preserved intact, while modern culture flourishes and continues to find a home. All the personalities of this grand capital are captured with great charm and reverence—from the sober and aristocratic in the older quarters to the futuristic and urbane in the squares of La Defense. 500 full-color images bring many neighborhoods of this famous city to life, and the oversized format highlights the timeless beauty of Paris.
