You’ve seen the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and Notre Dame; you’ve stood in line and been jostled by tourists. Now it’s time to explore the real Paris. There is no better place to find it than in the boutiques selling crusty bread and creamy cheese, witty hats and serious kitchenware, luxurious lingerie and useful works of art. Shop windows and intimate interiors distill the qualities we most admire in the City of Light: a love of fantasy and tradition, of craft and style, and the gift of doing simple things well. Michael Webb has chosen fifty of the most intriguing shops in Paris for their individuality and the beauty of their displays. New and old, tiny or expansive, they engage all the senses, and reveal the true character of the capital. Whether you make the trip from your armchair or hop on the next plane, this book will guide you, in words and pictures, through the windows of Paris.
