about this item

In the carefree years of the early twentieth century, Paris bubbled with energy and an exuberance to enjoy life to the fullest. This beautifully produced pocket edition of nostalgic black-and-white photographs celebrates the vibrant character of this "movable feast" of a city. The photographs capture the glittering stars of the day ambling through the streets and nightclubs of Paris--Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Nina Simone and Miles Davis, Marlene Dietrich and Sammy Davis Jr. Daydream away a sunny afternoon with a fresh-faced Audrey Hepburn on a café terrace. Admire the perfect silhouette of a young Yves Saint Laurent deep in thought.Fall in love like the enamored couple embracing along the banks of the Seine. Note the graceful breeze catching the hem of a fashionable woman on the Champs-Élysées. Join young Parisians sailing miniature sailboats in the Luxembourg Gardens or observe local passersby at the lighthearted, musical spectacle of Parisian street-life. From visions of sunbathers by the Eiffel Tower to the glamour of jazz bars and Josephine Baker, discover the timeless charm of the City of Light in this carefully curated collection of photographs from the first half of the twentieth century that capture the effervescent spirit of life in Paris.
