Item description for Paris: History, Architecture, Art, Lifestyle, in Detail by Gilles Plazy...

A sumptuously illustrated book for travelers who want to find and keep alive the Paris beyond that which can be found in a travel guidebook. Paris is the first stop in "The Grand Collection," a major series of elegant travel references to Europe's great capitals, written with an engaging insider's perspective and presented in a lavish format.

Each chapter in The Grand Collection's Paris covers a theme such as the city's early history; its architectural riches; and of course great art treasures. Each theme is developed in text and in lavish illustrations: discover how the Louvre chteau developed into the glorious art temple it is today; unmask the layers of architecture to identify how Paris, the modern capital, resembles the city that existed during the Revolution of 1789. Enticing ideas and itineraries for walks around the city present the chance to make the most of these inspirations. Excerpts from authors who captured their Paris in prose extend the sense of the city across time.

Paris opens the doors to the grandest city of all with comprehensive detail and personal insights from those who love it most, the Parisians. This glorious volume is the ultimate indulgence in the passionate affair with the civilization that is Paris.
