This book offers a handsomely illustrated journey into the universe of the Eiffel Tower, from its construction up until today. The publisher is Editions de La Martinière. This original work compares images from the past and present to recount the technical challenges and the truly global aura of the edifice. You may read or glance through the book in both directions, since there are two ways to look at it!
Standing 324 meters tall, the Eiffel Tower is fascinating from all points of view, as its architectural and engineering feats remain unparalleled. It was built and opened to the public in 1889 for the World’s Fair. It was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.
The Tower is a symbol of Paris and of all of France. It is truly an icon that is known the world over, embodying the values of freedom and peace.
For 130 years, it has inspired designers, artists, brands, and businessmen. And it attracts over 6 million visitors each year! It is one of the world’s most visited monuments.
