When you think of Paris do you picture the Eiffel Tower? The medieval city of Notre Dame? The elegant boulevards of Baron Haussmann? The Montmartre of Toulouse- Lautrec? The grandeur of the Louvre? The Art Nouveau of the Paris Metro? The Grand Projets of François Mitterrand? Or…? Yes, there is just so much beauty to Paris.

In more than 200 striking images, Paris celebrates the French capital, from its world- famous landmarks to evocative alleyways, from the top of the Eiffel Tower to the tunnels of the Paris Metro, the sewers – yes, Paris has sewers worth visiting – and the catacombs.

From the 1970s Pompidou Centre to the latest pop-up beaches beside the Seine, from everyday life to preparing, buying, selling and serving food, from landmarks to the city at night and on to all the varied means of transport available in the metropolis.

Presented in a landscape format and with captions explaining the story behind each entry, Paris is a stunning collection of images celebrating the world’s most romantic city.
