Andre Granet: Decors Ephemeres, Paris 1909-1948 (French Edition)

Andre Granet: Decors Ephemeres, Paris 1909-1948 (French Edition)

In Paris between 1909 and 1948, the salons in the Grand Palais near the Champs-Olys es were installed with extraordinary decorative interiors to accommodate automobile and other trade fairs. The splendor of these temporary sets was a direct expression of a gloriously progressive Paris married with the work of the French architect Andr Granet (1881-1974). In 1948, Granet's work was documented in a large-format book, which has long been out of print and is now available again here as a stunning facsimile reprint. D cors Oph mAres contains photographs of Granet's installations and lighting designs, as well as his illuminations for the Eiffel tower and the banks of the Seine. It is completed by outlines and sketches of his daring designs.

The Bibliotheque nationale de France (BnF) is the National Library of France, located in Paris. It is intended to be the repository of all that is published in France. The current president of the library is Bruno Racine.

The National Library of France traces its origin to the royal library founded at the Louvre by Charles V in 1368. It expanded under Louis XIV and opened to the public in 1692. The library's collections swelled to over 300,000 volumes during the radical phase of the French Revolution when the private libraries of aristocrats and clergy were seized.
After the establishment of the French First Republic in September 1792, "the Assembly declared the Bibliotheque du Roi to be national property and the institution was renamed the Bibliotheque Nationale. After four centuries of control by the Crown, this great library now became the property of the French people."
Following a series of regime changes in France, it became the Imperial National Library and in 1868 was moved to newly constructed buildings on the Rue de Richelieu designed by Henri Labrouste. Upon Labrouste's death in 1875 the library was further expanded, including the grand staircase and the Oval Room, by academic architect Jean-Louis Pascal. By 1896, the library had become the largest repository of books in the world, although it has since been surpassed by other libraries for that title.

Le Creuset Enamel-on-Steel Whistling 1-4/5-Quart Teakettle, Cobalt

Le Creuset Enamel On Steel offers superior craftsmanship in heavy gauge steel. Each piece is glazed with a hard, glossy enamel making it both durable and eye-catching

You won't let the water run dry when you hear the whistle of this tea kettle. Le Creuset constructs the traditional shape out of lightweight, sturdy steel and coats it with tough enamel. A shiny stainless-steel rim helps protect the edge from chipping and facilitates the lid positioning. The high handle can be locked in an upright position to keep your hand away from the heat, and a lever on the whistling device flips the spout open for pouring. Low and broad, the base allows maximum surface contact for faster boiling. Choose from many bright, modern colors to match or harmonize with your kitchen and other Le Creuset cookware. --Ann Bieri
