quai saint michel

Mannequin en tailleur de Jacques Fath quai Saint-Michel, Paris, 1952. Photograph by Willy Maywald.

The model reads at the Bouquinistes, booksellers of used and antiquarian books who ply their trade along large sections of the banks of the Seine. Famous for its second-hand book stores and its old book sellers, the Quai Saint-Michel links Saint-Michel Bridge to the Petit Pont Bridge.
