To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
There are a lot of really stunning photos in this book, very pretty and a great coffee table book, but here's my problem with it, they are all close up shots save for maybe two or three. There are some really lovely pictures of close ups of art and architecture but overall there aren't many pictures that scream Paris. There's one picture with the Eiffel Tower but apart from that they may as well have been taken at a florist in Hackney because a close up of a bunch of flowers in Paris is the same as anywhere else. I was hoping for shots of blossom trees with ll'arc de triumphed in the background. A shame really, I feel this was a missed opportunity.
Edit since seeing the other bloom books I have more of an appreciation for the format of this book. The pictures are beautiful, I still feel that it's not quite paris-ey enough but I think my initial review was a little too critical
Purchased this “ London in bloom” and “Paris in bloom “, I was amazed by the breathtaking photography, and Georgianna eye for detail. This book captures the beauty of all the flowers featured in this book. Just when you think you’ve seen the most stunning photo you turn the page and there are more delicious treats for the eye!. Two of the most beautiful books I’ve come across, and I do own a few. Highly recommended purchase.
