"Yvon's Paris offers dozens of glorious photographs, many filling two pages-flat paper magically alive with moments stolen from time. ... Yvon's photographs beautifully remind us that our own fleeting lives are the motion lost in slow exposures." -- Washington Post
"This stunning collection presents a hundred iconic black-and-white photographs of Paris taken from 1918 to 1939 by Pierre Yves-Petit, who went by "Yvon." ... His moody photos of bookstalls, bridges, barges, gargoyles, galleries, and gardens capture the quintessence of the City of Light." -- National Geographic Traveler
"Gorgeous." -- The New York Times Book Review
"While most postcards showed straightforward, unimaginative views of the capital city, one photographer in particular-Pierre Yves Petit (who called himself Yvon)-sought to change that by capturing Paris in the early mornings and late nights, when the light was more dramatic, or in unusual weather conditions." -- Vanity Fair
"Are Yvon's photographs as resonant as they are because they capture the spirit of Paris so well? Or is Paris as resonant as it is because it captures the spirit of Yvon's postcards so well?" -- The New York Times "Lens" blog
