Shaped by emperors, architects and artists, Paris is a city of splendour, elegance, and romance; cosmopolitan and colourful, its streets pulse with life. This sumptuously illustrated book celebrates its glory on the Grands Boulevards and Champs Elysees, and captures its cultural heartbeat in the artists' quarter of Montmartre and the Quartier Latin on the Left Bank. To discover Paris is also to experience the finer things in life. The Paris Book dips into superb museums and galleries; visits opulent theatres, grand restaurants and bohemian cafes; browses the city's flea markets, bookshops and chic boutiques; and cruises along the Seine. As Hemingway said, Paris is "a moveable feast".
