5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Guidebook 10 août 2011
Par Daniel G. Lebryk - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is exactly the guidebook for Paris I've been searching for. Fodor's, Frommer's, Lonely Planet, and Rick Steves, are all excellent guidebooks for the average or first time visitor to Paris. The AAD Paris is for the person that wants a much richer, deeper experience visiting this amazing city. Sadly the title AAD doesn't roll off the tongue very well, and has a sort of ADD feeling about it. Once the book is open, the title is irrelevant.

The book is fairly small and lightweight, it is a little larger than a CD case. Unlike the standard travel guides, this guide fits easily in my hand; carry on luggage, my iPad sleeve, or a purse. This beautiful book is easy to carry around.

This guide focuses on the subjects I find interesting in my hometown of Chicago, and the time I lived in Paris, Architecture, Art, and Design. The authors could have taken the simple road with Architecture and Art - focusing on the classic buildings and museums in Paris. Instead they present the significant and the hidden treasure. The first place in Architecture is the Cinematique Francaise, amazing for the films it archives and honors, but also because it is a fabulous Frank O. Gehry design. Galerie Celal, an incredible place that includes graffiti on purpose. Some of the old standards are shown, Le Louvre, Le Grand Palais, and Musee Rodin, but with a slightly different approach than the other guidebooks. AAD doesn't try to describe how to see all the art in a building, but describes what is significant about that building and leaves the visitor to discover the rest of the building. Design is a fabulous surprise, boutique hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs, and shops. Again, nothing standard was chosen here. I would be surprised to find too many of the places listed in any of the standard guidebooks.

Each subject is covered in two to four pages of beautiful photographs, one succinct paragraph (repeated in four different languages), and thumbnail visiting facts (especially important are the websites for detailed information).

Gratefully the book leaves out the long discussions about accommodations, how to get around the city, the cultural differences, and some form of crash course in French. No, this book assumes the traveler has figured out where he will stay, how to get there, and navigate the city. In my view, those are subjects that are best left at home after the planning is completed. I don't need to carry around fifty pages of hotel recommendations once I've made my travel arrangements (although there are a number of incredible hotel recommendations, given the look of these hotels, I'd probably visit them just to see what they look like). But I do need a book that can guide me to some amazing places I might not already know. Give me just enough information to tweak my curiosity and then allow me to discover that place. The web addresses are helpful to find the most current practical information.

The book is beautifully printed and published. The details are remarkable. Inside the front and back cover there is a purple piece of paper to cover the fold over front and back covers - just like a fine book. The photographs are amazing, as I would expect from this publisher. The binding is rugged and the paper stock heavy. A small nit to pick is the map it is two wasted pages. There is no way anybody could navigate the city with this small-stylized map. On the other hand there are three pages with beautiful frank descriptions of each area of Paris. In few words, the core sense of the area is described.

I honestly wish I had this book during my last trip to Paris. This book is a wonderful piece to carry while walking around the city. Armed with the incredibly detailed map - Plan de Paris par Arrondissment ( Plan de Paris par Arrondissement: Paris Street Guide by District (English and French Edition)) or The Paris Mapguide; it is easy to see some amazing sights in Paris.

TeNeuese has published an iPad / iPhone companion app to the Cool City / AAD series. This is an incredibly beautiful app. If you have a data plan for France, the app can use your location to show how far away something is (right now Hotel Amour is 6,778.71km away), show the place on a highly detailed map (the built in google map), present a slide show of the location, with an optional spoken word description. In the iTunes App store, search for Cool Cities. Although it was designed for iPhone size, the 2X version on an iPad is still sufficiently high resolution.

The publisher provided me with a free copy of this book for review.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Informed Guide to the Romance and Adventure of Paris 11 août 2011
Par Grady Harp - Publié sur Amazon.com
ADD Paris: Art Architecture Design is a small pocket book sized but beautifully designed and detailed sophisticated guide to Paris. Published by teNeues Press it carries the elegant stamp of production that guarantees a strong product. It is meant as a guide to what makes Paris unique in art galleries and museums (here presented in near PR-type pages for each institution), in the idiosyncratic architecture of the City of Light in both commercial and housing, and design - 'the direct contrast between the charm of former epochs and the sleekness of modernity is a recurring theme of the Parisian style ...and interior design.' The guide takes us through most of the twenty arrondissements of the city and manages to capture the flavor of each. For the frequent traveler to Paris there are many 'hints' on how to manipulate the city to your needs - transportation, rules and regulations, idiosyncrasies. There is also a highly sophisticated guide to exploring the new architecture of the city by such world-renowned architects as Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers, Jean Nouvel, and Frank Gehry

The phenomenal sites of Paris are covered as one would expect, but it is the architectural secrets this book so very well addresses. Instead of simply a fine guide book for the flaneur, this new book is brimming with insider information that assures that everyone who takes this book along on their journey will find the best of Paris. The beauty of this book, one of a series by teNeues Press, is the fact that it is in four languages - English, German, French and Spanish - and each area of discussion is accompanied by commentary that makes the survey of style and art ring. The photographic images are in brilliant color and the addresses of each of the galleries, museums, commercial buildings and design examples accompany each page. This is a perfect guide for the art tourist who wants to see the important aspects of the both the old and the new Paris. The guide is edited by Martin Nicholas Kunz and Lizzy Courage Berlin, with special editing by Nathalie Grolimund, who have added maps and complete tourist services in the back of the book. Indispensable! Grady Harp, August 11
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Beautiful Guidebook to a Beautiful City 3 novembre 2011
Par H. F. Corbin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Two things surprised me immediately about this guidebook to Paris. A tremendous number of the galleries, museums and other buildings included was constructed in the last twenty-five years or so. Additionally I found it odd that the Louvre, surely one of the great museums of the world, only gets two pages in the art section. On the other hand, the sometimes controversial Pyramide du Louvre designed by Ming Pei gets four pages of exposure in the architecture so I suppose it all evens out in the end.

There are over 50 sights of art, architecture and design for the traveler included, along with a map of Paris and valuable information about accommodations, tours, sports, getting round, etc., so that this little beauty may be all you would need to enjoy the rich culture of this great city.

I particularly like the photos and information on the following: the Louvre of course, Hotel Biron - Musee Rodin, Galerie Celal (the gorgeous two-age photograph on pages 26-27 looks as if it could have come from the late Keith Haring), Passerelle Simone de Beauvoir designed by Dietmar Feichtinger and Tour T1.

As you expect from this series of guidebooks, this one is lavishly laid out, photographed and printed. It even smells good! It is almost too beautiful to be subjected to a backpack or an airline luggage handler.
