Even seasoned Francophiles and Paris buffs will find something new and fascinating in Curiosities of Paris, a timeless guidebook and gift, which includes 800 illustrations.
Journalist Dominique Lesbros is the author of many books about Paris, including Paris Quiz, also published by The Little Bookroom. Simon Beaver grew up in the South of England, but moved to Paris nearly 40 years ago. He now lives in Brittany. For three decades he has been adapting books, TV and movie scripts, songs and biographies into English, writing subtitles and recording voice overs. Recently, he has added another string to his bow: concocting French versions of the HP Lounge app's humorous pop star gossip.
"Lesbros's delightful guide to Paris...will entertain and educate nearly every step you might take in the City of Light....A fun, informative, and entertaining way to explore Paris, especially for those who enjoy their travels off the beaten path." --Library Journal ..".this [book] is for the hardcore Paris aficionado, or the 'interstitial tourist, ' who the book defines as someone who prefers to 'explore the nooks and crannies of the urban landscape rather than its more aristocratic facets'...Smaller than a coffeetable tome but more robust than a pocket guide, Curiosities of Paris offers up more than 800 photos accompanied by captions that, while brief, pack a punch." --The Paris Blog
