paris. portrait of a city. taschen

from the makers off all good books, TASCHEN have brought us another must have coffee table keeper.
.... paris. portrait of a city.
a love story of imagery, photography and more. images that will evoke, provoke and explore.
"Images captured by the most illustrious photographers – Daguerre, Marville, Atget, Lartigue, Brassaï, Kertész, Ronis, Doisneau, Cartier-Bresson and many more – but also by many unknown photographers, attempt to bottle just a little of that “Parisian air”, something of that particular poetry given out by the stones and inhabitants of a constantly changing city that has inspired untold numbers of writers and artists over the ages"
