Paris Vu Du Ciel
Some months back, I caught the latest series of aerial photographs of Paris by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, perhaps best known for his epic work, Home, at the Musee Marmottan. I was awestruck and would have bought the book on the spot had it been available. Now just in time for the holidays, the book is out, at least in France and also I noticed on Amazon's Canadian site. Fair warning: this coffee table book is pretty much the size of a small coffee table and it's pretty pricey too. But the photos are absolutely incredible, making it the perfect gift for your favorite Francophile. Look for the cover image you see here. There is also a 2002 version with a picture of Notre Dame on the cover; I'm sure the photos are just as delectable but I can't vouch for it.
