  • Bridges of Paris: a beautiful coffee-table book from Michael Saint James

Last Updated: 6 September 2022


Did you know that no less than thirty-seven bridges cross the Seine River in Paris? For American author Michael Saint James, they are no longer a mystery.

Having spent the four seasons of the year in Paris, the photographer has compiled a photo album of all the bridges spanning the Seine. The large-format coffee-table book features over 350 original photographs each more beautiful than the one before. From the Pont-Neuf to the Pont de Bercy and the Pont Alexandre III, each of the bridges has its own character due to its architecture and history. Michael’s photos shifts focus from the monumental to the intimate riverside moments that make up the daily life of Paris.

Bridges connect the Right and Left Banks as well as the two islands of Île de la Cité and Île Saint-Louis. The book ‘Bridges of Paris’ best illustrates why the banks of the River Seine have been listed as a World Heritage site by Unesco since 1991. Get your copy and start dreaming about Paris!
