Paris in bloom, Georgianna Lane
Paris in Bloom by photographer and author Georgianna Lane is a joy to read and especially: to look at the photographs.
It is an ode to Paris in Spring, and in my mind at this moment the next best thing to being in Paris yourself.
The book is divided into four sections, Parks and gardens, Floral boutiques, Market flowers and Floral displays. All the photographs are extremely beautiful and do not only show the flowers of Paris, but also the patterns of the typical Parisian things like doors and cast-iron gates, combined with flowers.
I would have loved a section on balconies and window-sills, but perhaps that is an idea for another book (I can only hope).
This book makes you fall in love with Paris even more (and yes, that is possible).
Here are just a few examples of the photographs in this book. I am afraid they are not very good, but I hope they do give you an impression of how stunning this book really is.
