Item description for Remembering Paris by Andre Renoux & Denis Tillinac...
Even those who think they know Paris will be surprised and delighted by this captivating book, written and illustrated by two experts in the art of discovering the hidden Paris. In the course of his life Denis Tillinac has sought out the unspoilt courtyards, old-fashioned cafs, and elegant parks which keep Parisians in touch with their rich literary and artistic past.
Tilinac's companion in nostalgia is the painter, Andr Renoux, who has also fallen under the spell of the City of Light. Renoux has been painting the essence of Parisian life for the past thirty years, bringing to his canvases an affectionate eye for the shopfronts, bistros, cafs, squares, and quais which have not change in the French capital for many years. Renoux has found those small details which make his paintings of Paris so compelling and unique: the flowers on the balcony, a glimpse into a private courtyard, the decorative paintwork on a shopfront.
This beautiful tribute to the most enchanting of capital cities offers a flneur's view of a disappearing Paris--but one which is still within our grasp.

Remembering Paris May 23, 2000
The primary reason to purchase this book is the wonderful illustrations. While the narrative is evocative, it is a bit dark for me. None the less, having read this book I would love to visit Paris again to discover the city which Tillinac has so vividly described.
