Inspired to create a one-of-a-kind tribute to the city she loves, Leslie Little piloted this dramatic album of quotes from Paris-loving writers, dramatists, artists, and other celebrated figures for whom the city was also ne plus ultra, paired with vivid photographs by Jim Scholz that almost seem to sparkle. These 129 images truly evoke the city of light, with numerous full-page and double-page photos (31 inches across) that include a sweeping view of Beaubourg at the Centre Pompidou, a nighttime stroll along the Champs-Elysées, the arched ceiling of Notre Dame, and the Place Vendôme at twilight. Quotes and writings from Cole Porter, Victor Hugo, Henry Miller, Paul Verlaine, Simone de Beauvoir, Coco Chanel, Voltaire, Honoré de Balzac, Oscar Wilde, Paul Cézanne, Gertrude Stein, and Anaïs Nin float over the photos on vellum pages, and the book is bound in a velvet-like embossed cloth with metallic silk-screened printing.
