These two new volumes in the "Timeless Places" series (which also includes guides on Tuscany and Provence) can only be highly praised for their sparkling photographs and reasonable price. Paris is a city of remarkable architecture, great art, enticing foods, and lush parks. Each of the many areas that make up the city has a distinctive character: Montmartre has picturesque streets and cafes that draw artists and seekers of nightlife, while the elegant Ile St. Louis offers a quiet oasis in the middle of the Seine. Almost every photograph in the guide makes use of the unique quality of light that has attracted so many great artists to Paris. Although many of the shots are of the traditional tourist attractions--the Louvre, M tro signs, the Left Bank, and Sacr Coeur--many others are street scenes, balconies, and shops, and all show an original eye, although the work of several different photographers is used. The photographs of Venice are equally unique and play up both the role of water and the predominance of color in a city whose architecture harks back to the time of its supremacy on the seas. Both guides offer enticing views of these wonderful cities and are therefore highly recommended for all public libraries.--Linda M.
