Stunning Titles for the Spring from Rizzoli Publishers

A new collection of stunning titles for the spring from Rizzoli publishers is there for the taking, the reading the keeping. From Alain Ducasse, to a Walk in Paris, to Seasons of New York, to Fiat in all its locales, to French Bistro season recipes - -there is much to savor and satisfy and tickle one's wanderlust.

"Nature" by Alain Ducasse (Rizzoli, $45.00, 359 pages) is virtually a collectible featuring as it does in words and pictures and fabled recipes now in simple and healthy interpretations of classic dishes. Intelligently organized, page after page of this ample tome tantalizes with visuals and clearly written recipes. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

"Henri's Walk to Paris" with illustrations by master graphic designer Saul Bass and written by Leonore Klein (Rizzzoli/Universe, $19.95) is a charming and enticing story of a young boy Henri who lived in Reboul and decided to walk to Paris. Orange, hot pink and green on parade. Enchantment galore plus a surprise. MUST HAVE.

"The Seasons of New York" by Charles J. Ziga (Rizzzoli/Universe, $24.95, 208 pages) is mostly pictures but what images they are - -stunning full pagers of some of the most well-known landmarks in all five NYC boroughs. Truly a page turner.

"Fiat 500 The Autobiography" by Lorenzo Ardizio (Rizzoli, $45.00) is a lovely love letter that goes back to the 1950s and brings us up to the present and foreshadows the future. In essence, the book is an "auto" biography of one of the legendary makes of automobiles.

"French Bistro" by Bertrand Auboyneau and Francois Simon (Rizzoli/Flammarion, $34.95, 215 pages) is a paean to the classic French bistro. We are there sampling the food, smelling the environment, transported to the Paul Bert and other superlative Parisian bistros. For travelers, for food lovers, for fans of the French bistros this title is for all of you.
