Reviews - What do customers think about Paris, Shops & More?
Great book, great info, great pictures Dec 4, 2007
I love this book. Can't believe you get so much for the great price. The shops are grouped into arrondissements and a map is drawn with the shops noted. There's vital information such as hours of operation, website address, & perfect description. The photos are superb. I didn't need to take photos of the stores myself as the book did it perfectly for me... and on matte paper! I can't stress how great the photos are in this book. All the Taschen books are fabulous. This book is really packed with everything you need. As they say, a photo is worth a thousand words and this book is packed! This book's vibe is today's Paris; It really makes you feel like you're there. If you like verbiage, than this book is not for you.
