Product description

Title: Paris

History Architecture Art Lifestyle In Detail

Edited by Gilles Plazy

Twenty centuries of revolution, artistic genius, and daily toil have forged Paris as we know it today. To experience the richness of this much - loved city is to understand its history, its cultural heritage and the palpable energy that has come to define it. The specialist authors of this equisite volume, all Parisians by birth or inclination, offer personal insights into all facets of their city: from Paris's turbulent and bloody history and the gritty reality of medieval life on its streets, to the magnificent architectural plans of kings and empors, daring urbanists, and modern architects. Paris is a celebration of the capital's social riches - from sculpture and painting to literature and cinema - and the ambiance and savoir faire of this elegant city.

The wonderfully original illustrations throughout capture the essence of Paris. From behind the scenes at the Louvre to smoky jazz clubs, and from battles in barricaded streets to the sinuous windings of the Seine, this book is the ultimate indulgence in the insatiable love affair that is Paris.
