From the Louvre and the Jardin des Tuileries in the 1st arrondissement to the Moulin Rouge and Montmartre in the 18th, from Notre-Dame de Paris on the Île de la Cité to the museums and narrow lanes of Le Marais, from the Trocadero and the Eiffel Tower to the antique bookstores and old-world cafes of the Latin Quarter, Paris seems to come alive in springtime.  

We can think of no better way to welcome in spring than to celebrate Paris itself—the center of France's literature, art, and culture (including its most famous American and British expatriates) as well as its history, stretching back more than two millennia. Here you'll find biographies and travel guides, gripping histories and unforgettable fiction, books on great artists and films set in the City of Light. And of course, cookbooks and kitchen memoirs exploring France's fabulous cuisine.
