Eiffel Tower



Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower (French: La Tour Eiffel) is famous tower in Paris.

The Eiffel Tower is constructed from iron lattice work, and was originally built as the entrance arch for the 1889 World's Fair. It was constructed by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel's company, and stands 1,063 feet (324 meters).

The Eiffel Tower is the tallest building in Paris, and for 41 years (1889 to 1930) was the tallest building in the world (it held this title, until the completion of the Chrysler Building in New York City - although today the Eiffel Tower is actually taller than the Chrysler Building thanks to the addition of antenna in 1957).

Visitors to the Tower will find that there are three levels connected by stairs and lifts (although the stairs to the highest level are usually closed, and this level is normally only accessible by lift). On the first two levels, there are restaurants (Le 58 tour Eiffel on the first level, and Le Jules Verne on the second level). The highest level is an observatory level, and at 915.7 feet (279.11 meters) is the highest building accessible to the public within the European Union.

The Eiffel Tower is today the most visited paid monument in the world, and received its 250 millionth visitor in 2010. Approximately, 7.1 million visited the Tower in 2011.

  • Where Is the Eiffel Tower
Product Description:
Learn about the Eiffel Tower, beloved and iconic symbol of Paris, France, and one of the most recognizable structures in the world!

When the plans for the Eiffel Tower were first announced, many people hated the design of the future landmark, calling it  ungainly and out of step with the beautiful stone buildings of the city. But once it went up for the World's Fair in 1889, the people of Paris quickly fell in love with the tower. Today it seems impossible to imagine Paris without the Eiffel Tower, which greets millions of visitors each year who climb up its wrought-iron stairs, ride its glass elevators, and enjoy the wonderful views of the city spread out below it.

This book, part of the New York Times best-selling series, is enhanced by eighty illustrations and a detachable fold-out map complete with four photographs on the back.

Soaring wonder
The making of the Eiffel Tower

“The Tower is also present to the entire world...a universal symbol of Paris...from the Midwest to Australia, there is no journey to France which isn’t made, somehow, in the Tower’s name.”
—Roland Barthes

When Gustave Eiffel completed his wrought iron tower on Paris’s Champ de Mars for the World’s Fair in 1889, he laid claim to the tallest structure in the world. Though the Chrysler Building would, 41 years later, scrape an even higher sky, the Eiffel Tower lost none of its lofty wonder: Originally granted just a 20-year permit, the Tower became a permanent and mesmerizing fixture on the Parisian skyline. Commanding by day, twinkling by night, it has mesmerized Francophiles and lovers, writers, artists, and dreamers from all over the world, welcoming around seven million visitors every single year.

Based on an original, limited edition folio by Gustave Eiffel himself, this fresh TASCHEN edition explores the concept and construction of this remarkable building. Step by step, one latticework layer after another, Eiffel’s iconic design evolves over double-page plates, meticulous drawings, and on-site photographs, including new images and even more historical context. The result is at once a gem of vintage architecture and a unique insight into the idea behind an icon.

  • Murder on the Eiffel Tower A Victor Legris Mystery Victor Legris Mysteries
Product Description:

The brand-new, shiny Eiffel Tower is the pride and glory of the 1889 World Exposition. But one sunny afternoon, as visitors are crowding the viewing platforms, a woman collapses and dies on this great Paris landmark. Can a bee sting really be the cause of death? Or is there a more sinister explanation? Enter young bookseller Victor Legris. Present on the tower at the time of the incident, and appalled by the media coverage of the occurrence, he is determined to find out what actually happened. In this dazzling evocation of late nineteenth-century Paris, we follow Victor as his investigation takes him all over the city and he suspects an ever-changing list of possible perpetrators. Could mysterious Kenji Mori, his surrogate father and business partner at the bookstore Legris operates, be involved in the crime? Why are beautiful Russian illustrator Tasha and her colleagues at the newly launched sensationalist newspaper Passepartout always up-to-date in their reporting? And what will Legris do when the deaths begin to multiply and he is caught in a race against time?

Murder on the Eiffel Tower is painstakingly researched, an effortless evocation of the glorious City of Light, and an exciting opening to a promising series of eight books featuring Victor Legris.
