4) Reliures françaises à décor doré 1507-1967, Isabelle de Conihout et Pascal Ract-Madoux


General Information:


And a personal note, about Lyon:

The process of reaching Lyon from Paris is immeasurably improved, since the days, not so long ago, when Parisians all used to say "yes-we-have-visited-Lyon-but-only 'en passant'"... aka racing through the Fourvière autoroute tunnels, on their annual migrations South to the Midi...

Nowadays, via TGV from the Gare de Lyon, the Lyon Part Dieu station is only 2 hours away: the high speed train ride is smooth and fun and impressive -- and you can gaze at Cluny and its pretty little valley out the right-side window as you speed by...

And why spend time in crowded and noisy and expensive Paris, when you can enjoy springtime in Lyon's beautiful Parc de la Tête d'Or?:

-- & tour, and use, Lyon's magnificent Bibliothèque Municipale --

-- & wander through Lyon's fascinating Printing Museum --

-- & savor the cuisine lyonnaise --

-- & appreciate Lyon's complicated and fascinating history --

-- lots more to France than just Paris...
