Don Quixote in Paris

_DSC7137-001

This French version of Don Quijote, with a Dali illustration of the hero and his companion, takes pride of place in a Parisian bookshop.

It grabbed my attention because of the statuesque nature of Quijote here, remarkably similar in shape to the Eiffel Tower which  dominates the skyscape next to this bookshop. I had hoped to capture its reflection alongside the book but the geometry didn’t quite work – but there are plenty of miniature Eiffels in the reflection if you look closely.

  1. One of the best book ever, beautifully illustrated in this particular edition ; the reflection you caught is really pricy.
