The day I arrived back in Paris, the 22nd I immediately ran to the Festival du Livre Culinaire at the Carrousel in the Louvre. The same space where many fashion shows take place and the Spa fair. Of course there are tons of famous chef cookbooks on view at the festival.
There were antiquarian cookbook sellers too, some of my favorite..

There were gorgeous cookbooks of every region in the world on view...
Attend any conference or fair in Europe and you'll see the attendees dragging wheelie suitcases. These are for all the heavy catalogs handed out. Who knew?
