The amazing book celebrating the 130th anniversary of the Eiffel tower
"I AM GROWING JEALOUS OF THIS TOWER. IT IS MORE FAMOUS THAN ME."
Familiar, unchanging and unmistakable - that's the Eiffel Tower, a majestic presence displaying its 324 meters of iron lacework against the Paris sky. At the time it was built in 1889, it stood as the representation of an outstanding technical challenge and a demonstration of French industrial prowess. And since that time, with the passing of each technological and cultural revolution, the Tower has remained forever modern. This is the Iron Lady, the beautiful Parisienne.
A seductress cherished and protected by the men and women of the Tower, and she opens her arms to visitors from all around the world. The perfect international icon, she is an inspiration to the greatest artists and creators, and an embodiment of the values of liberty and peace.
