Format: Hardcover
Expert graphic designer Susan Hockbaum juxtaposes Paris' most luscious treasures, often in onsite settings, in a whimsical way that reflects their design, colors, ingenuity.
Visual wit abounds. Look for sublime repetition of forms in Paris' monuments and Paris' pastries - perfect for the armchair traveler.
The one drawback - it will make you drool and run out of the house searching for something delectable and impossibly Frenchie.
You have been warned.
Enjoy!

Format: Hardcover
A cute and attractive tome that showcases varieties of French pastry photographed in chic Parisian locales to demonstrate the visual similarity between them. Aside from the visual flair the book serves as an excellent catalog on the history and composition of some of France's best known delectable baked goods.

I devoured this book the moment I got it home. Stunning images are just the beginning of this tasty treatise. Insightful and thorough, I learned a lot about things I thought I knew well already.
