Rooftop ParisAbrams Books
A spectacular accordion-folded gift book that is a love letter to the city of Paris, as seen in panoramic views high above the city streetsRooftop Paris presents a unique panoramic and comprehensive visual tour of one of the world’s most iconic cityscapes. From eight vantage points above the city, photographer Laurent Dequick invites you to explore, from dawn to dusk, a seemingly infinite landscape of zinc, slate, and copper from which emerge the great gilded monuments of the City of Light. Short essays focus on key Paris neighborhoods, and call-out captions on the photographs highlight notable buildings. The book is produced in an accordion-style concertina format that would stretch to 125 feet (38 meters) if fully unfolded. It is bound between hardcovers and inserted in a sturdy slipcase.
