REVIEWS
-

"Her book is an opportunity to slow down and savor the amazing sights that one might miss when visiting a city where there’s so much to do... Boukabou also offers fascinating tidbits of historical knowledge—for example, in the 18th century, walkers who wished to sit on a Parisian park bench and observe the surroundings had to pay a fee for the privilege... Spending time with this book is a joyful virtual visit to Paris—the only thing missing is a plate of macarons. Lively prose and great photography bring the architecture of Paris to travelers and armchair explorers alike."
