When a city has as much personality as Paris does, it's practically impossible to encompass it within one book, yet photographer Nicolas Guilbert pulls off the feat admirably in this endlessly diverting tome. In these images, a flag-waving demonstrator marches on stilts, a nun hikes her skirt to ride a bike, a man makes an incredible leap on roller skates, a poster of de Gaulle seems to peer from the window of a train, a street lamp projects above the waters of a flooded avenue, and a souvenir vendor sells replicas of the Eiffel Tower in the shadow of the real thing. A photographer in the tradition of Robert Doisneau and Henri Cartier-Bresson, Guilbert has an eye for the poignant and absurd, and the hundreds of images here are a tribute to Paris's artists and activists, tourists and taxidermists.
