Private Gardens of Paris
Alexandra D'Arnoux (Author), Bruno De Laubadere (Author), Gilles De Chabaneix (Photographer)
The book is divided by three themes: Classical Gardens, Picturesque Gardens, and Exotic Gardens. Each garden is special in its own right, yet a quintessential Parisian thread runs through: rose bushes, iron fencing and furniture, and brick can found in nearly all 34 gardens highlighted in the book.

Private Gardens of Paris is available on Amazon, and in book stores.
