Illustrator: Matteo Pericoli
Editors: Krista Halverson, David Delannet

Paris in Our View is a collection of fifty-five poems reflecting Shakespeare and Company's perspective on the French capital—a perspective formed both by the books on our shelves and by the readers and writers who pass each day through our doors.

The acclaimed Italian illustrator Matteo Pericoli provides the gorgeous line drawings, which depict the window views of poets who, at one time or another, made their homes in Paris. These include the views of Arthur Rimbaud, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, Charles Baudelaire, Julio Cortázar, Aimé Césaire, Aja Monet, César Vallejo, Victor Hugo, Natalie Clifford Barney, and Oscar Wilde—as well as those of the Beat Hotel and Shakespeare and Company, whose window onto Notre-Dame cathedral and Hôtel-Dieu is featured on the book's cover.

The selection of poems includes both classic and contemporary poets, such as Carol Ann Duffy, Guillaume Apollinaire, Jacques Prévert, Anne Carson, Charles Bukowski, Gaël Faye, Pablo Neruda, Langston Hughes, Ai Qing, Oscar Wilde, Mahmoud Darwish, Eileen Myles, Yosano Akiko, Rainer Maria Rilke, Rita Dove, Wisława Szymborska, Andrée Chedid, Julio Cortázar, and Charles Baudelaire, among many others.
