Paris jellemzők

Explored through the eyes of photographer Max Derhy in over 900 evocative images, and interspersed with apercus and anecdotes of those who have lived in and loved the city, this is a unique guide to Paris. Starting at Point Zero, at the foot of Notre Dame, and followed by a map of the metro and suburban train network, the book takes you on a virtual tour of the city and its environs, accompanied by commentaries by the likes of Paul Auster, Henry Miller, Michel Houellebecq, Baudelaire, Stendhal, Zoe Valdes and Sonia Rykiel. From traditional landmarks, through parks and gardens, markets, shops and restaurants, to quirky details and lesser known arrondissements, each photograph is clearly labelled with its exact location. A listings section at the end of the book gives details of major hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs, as well as flea markets, department stores, auction houses and museums. This is the Paris you know and love and the Paris still waiting to be discovered.
