I am thrilled to announce the latest book by Marianne Strom, Le Marais: A Living Masterpiece. Marianne, a gifted photographer and historian, was my Parisian of the Month in 2013.
Le Marais: A Living Masterpiece is her follow up book to Paris en Details- Le Marais published in 2011. Both books give a rich and fully detailed account of the history of the Marais with gorgeous photos of architectural details such as doors, door knockers, stairways, masks, balconies, turrets, and fountains mostly from the stately hotel particuliers in the area.
Marianne has lived in the Marais for over 40 years and I am a newbie compared to her, witnessing the incredible changes over the years. She’s had two exhibitions of her collection of Marais photos at the Historical Library of the City of Paris.
We also have parallel interests, as Marianne has traveled the world photographing metro stations and had a traveling show in 40 countries titled Metro-Art in the Metro-Polis.
Le Marais: A Living Masterpiece at the moment is only available in Paris and France on Amazon France and also at the Carnavalet Museum Bookshop and at The Hotel de Sully bookshop, at the Centre des Monuments Nationaux. Text is in English and French and it sells for 35€.
