Flammarion; Box edition
This elegantly slip-covered book reveals some of the elegant interiors and ravishing objects found within this legendary, must-see palace of the French kings. It also shows the glories of the gardens, the Petit Trianon and the dairy farm created as an escape from court life by Marie Antoinette. It’s a delight of a book that you will dip into time and again.
