Review: Paris: A Three-Dimensional Expanding City Skyline

We first reviewed one of Sarah McMenemy's stunning expandable books here - on London. This time Paris is in clear view with this truly beautiful, meandering wander through the streets of this amazing city.

Small in format, the book is contained in a little hard cover case. Once removed, it folds out into a long strip, with front and back imagery and wordage on the spoils and delights of Paris.

From the iconic Eiffel Tower, past Notre Dame, The Louvre and Tuilleries Gardens, the Musee D'Orsay and on to Sacre-Coeur, Moulin Rouge and more - this is a delightful meander indeed.

Pages are delicately cut out along the top edge and McMenemy's truly gorgeous illustrations and pop-out effects are as deliciously edible as pain au chocolat.

This little tome would make a beautiful accompaniment to a journey to Paris, or simply a divine way to reminisce - or dream.

Also in this series - The Metropolitan Museum of Art. You can imagine what this is like!
