Format: Hardcover
I am a Parisian since 1975 and, braggadocio aside, I know the city where I live since it is the one of the most, if not the most, architecturally harmonious city in the world, with its mainly Haussmannian character. The photographer, Yann Layma, whom I had known during my travel industry stint, has captured not only the city's famous tourist spots but has "caught" them, with Parisians and tourists alike, in their day-to-day activities. He thus renders the city alive refuting, in my opinion, accusations of a museum-city with regards to its conservative infrastructural policies, refusing skyscrapers, as well as "dubious and deviant" innovations in its historical center. Moreover, Yann Layma has covered a gamut of the city, unknown to both its dwellers and visitors.

The book's material and layout are class, its cloth-binding, slip case and the introductory notes in English make it an ideal gift item for those who have been to Paris or to have it discovered visually by those who have not, inciting them to pursue a lifetime dream to see the City of Lights (metaphorically and literally). When I saw this book in a discount bookshop in the Latin Quarter at a very interesting price, I got three right away, two for relatives whom I tour guided recently, and one for myself. Albeit Paris being at my finger tips, I enjoy having a souvenir volume with glimpses of what is lasting and ephemeral. Yann Layma's book and pictures on Paris precisely offer both.

I purchased this beautiful book as a gift for a friend and just have to get one for myself after looking through it. Already have another Paris book but this one really captures the essence of the "city of light".

The book is oversized and full of great photographs. It is also impressively packaged in its own box.

From a personal perspective, I was hoping for a more romantic review of Paris. The Paris I adore is one of muted tones, both day and evening. While the book has lovely photos of aerial Paris, the Champs with Christmas lights, etc. there are more "people" shots than the traditional landmark buildings shot in interesting ways. The book feels somehow dated and just didn't appeal to my aesthetic.

If you want supersized, super colorful and supercharged--you will love it!

I am a keen photographer and have a number of quality picture books on Paris. Toujours Paris holds its own with most and my copy came as a sort of boxed set, which was nice (a spine to the box was damaged, no doubt due to overseas postage). The overall photo quality is good and many photos are interesting - some bring back fond memories of Paris. It's obvious that the photographer has been able to choose his light and timing, which is unfortunately something a mere tourist, like me, can't do.
