Description

A new title from the author/illustrator of the hugely popular All the Buildings in New York, this is a charmingly illustrated journey to Paris, told one building at a time.

All the Buildings in Paris is a love letter to Paris, told through James Gulliver Hancock’s unique and charming drawings of the city’s diverse architectural styles and streetscapes. This unusual combination of the artistic and the technical presents the Parisian cityscape as a colorful, one-of-a-kind journey through the streets of this historical city.

The book showcases beloved iconic buildings and structures, such as Notre Dame, the Louvre, and of course the Eiffel Tower. The latest modern landmarks are featured, such as the Centre Pompidou and the Grande Arche, along with celebrated cultural institutions, such as the Musee d’Orsay and the Palais Garnier Opera House. The book also includes the everyday buildings that may not be famous but whose stylishness or eccentricity make up an important part of Paris and its architectural landscape.

Parisians and tourists alike will savor this volume that uniquely celebrates the energy, spirit, and history of one of the greatest cities in the world.

Chocolate & Croissants

"Gothic, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Beaux Art, Early Modern and right up to Contemporary, the architeture of the most beautiful city in the world is presented in a precise and yet clearly freehand style, colored in with (I assume) watercolors in gorgeous combinations . . . Devoid of people and (largely) promotional come-ons, the book invites you into a quiet Paris all to yourself...like walking through the city at dawn before anyone is out."
