About this title

Synopsis:

The City of Light, the Capital of Romance, the cultural capital of the Western world, Paris is a city of intellect, sensuality and historical legacy. It is the birthplace of countless artistic and philosophical movements – from Impressionism to Cubism to Existentialism – and the center of gourmet cuisine and home to a vibrant nightlife.

This beautiful volume captures the vitality and sensuality of Paris with more than one hundred stunning, full-color photographs and lyrical text weaves past and present into a delightful narrative, providing a dynamic view of an equally dynamic city.

From Library Journal:

These two new volumes in the "Timeless Places" series (which also includes guides on Tuscany and Provence) can only be highly praised for their sparkling photographs and reasonable price. Paris is a city of remarkable architecture, great art, enticing foods, and lush parks. Each of the many areas that make up the city has a distinctive character: Montmartre has picturesque streets and cafes that draw artists and seekers of nightlife, while the elegant Ile St. Louis offers a quiet oasis in the middle of the Seine. Almost every photograph in the guide makes use of the unique quality of light that has attracted so many great artists to Paris. Although many of the shots are of the traditional tourist attractionsDthe Louvre, M tro signs, the Left Bank, and Sacr CoeurDmany others are street scenes, balconies, and shops, and all show an original eye, although the work of several different photographers is used. The photographs of Venice are equally unique and play up both the role of water and the predominance of color in a city whose architecture harks back to the time of its supremacy on the seas. Both guides offer enticing views of these wonderful cities and are therefore highly recommended for all public libraries.DLinda M. Kaufmann, Massachusetts Coll. of Liberal Arts Lib., North Adams
