Bridges of Paris
The ideal gift for someone special: an award winning, large-format coffee table book, with over 350 original color photographs, which casts new illumination on the City of Light. The famous love-locks of Paris are portrayed at the peak of their glory, along with stunning portraits of each bridge and intimate riverside moments.
Discover the unique history of every bridge crossing the Seine. Every bit a labor of love, Bridges of Paris takes a tour of this renowned city via a newly discovered route that begins with the first bridge built before Julius Caesar’s arrival in France and concludes with the first bridge of the new millennium. Once you’ve experienced this river tour, you’ll never look at Paris—or its bridges—the same way again.
