Ah, Paris. As springtime – the city’s most storied season – approaches, we’ve been pining for a Parisian holiday. Well, since we can’t exactly whisk ourselves over there right this very moment, perhaps the next best thing is taking a sentimental journey back to this lovely, lively place in another era.
We found an amazing hardcover vintage book called Le Livre de Paris (Arts et MÃ©tiers, Paris, 1957), featuring photography by Janine Niepce and commentary by Georges Charensol. As if that cool colorblocked cover – pictured above – wasn’t enough to make you exclaim, “Ooh, la la!,” its contents are even more captivating. Have a look at these beautiful monochrome photographs covering the spectrum of city life:
C’est trÃ¨s magnifique, no?

These images are beautiful, what a lucky find!
I was just there last month 🙂 You guys just made me *deep sigh* all over again with this post. Paris will do that to you.That last photo is my favorite!
Ooh la la 😉 Fabulous photos- then again, does Paris ever not look fab?
Love these photos, your blog is lovely, I’m so glad I found it, I really love all the images, really inspiring
The second to the last one made me double take for a second, as I thought it was from “Funny Face” (definitely Audrey Hepburn style)! These are all so neat!
Similar to photos of my french mother that I treasure!
