Paris: Les Boulevards


Paris’s romantic architecture and vibrant street culture make it one of the most enjoyable cities in the world to stroll and people watch in. This charming little illustrated volume by Charles Franck captures just that through delicate lithographs: panoramic cityscapes of the most gorgeous Parisian boulevards in Victorian-era illustrations. Complete with horse buggies in the streets, women in society hats, and men in coattails, Paris: Les Boulevards highlights a nostalgic era in both fashion and architecture.

To further add to the charm, this volume honors its original unique binding with twelve gatefolds: each page folds out to six panels displaying the whole of the famous promenades at once.
