A spectacular accordion-folded gift book that is a love letter to the city of Paris, as seen in panoramic views high above the city streets.
 
Rooftop Paris presents a unique panoramic and comprehensive visual tour of one of the world’s most iconic cityscapes. From eight vantage points above the city, photographer Laurent Dequick invites you to explore, from dawn to dusk, a seemingly infinite landscape of zinc, slate, and copper from which emerge the great gilded monuments of the City of Light. Short essays focus on key Paris neighborhoods, and call-out captions on the photographs highlight notable buildings.
 
The book is produced in an accordion-style concertina format that would stretch to 125 feet (38 meters) if fully unfolded. It is bound between hardcovers and inserted in a sturdy slipcase.
Photographer Laurent Dequick is an architect by training. He is fascinated with contemporary cities whose flow, human movement, and architecture come together to create living spaces. He is one of the leading photographers of YellowKorner gallery, with more than 90 locations around the world. In 2019, he published Grand Canal (Éditions du Chêne), an accordion-style book depicting the two banks of the Grand Canal of Venice.
