The Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann bookshop is full of books of all kinds, from fashion to cooking to cinema. For those who are curious or keen on reading, this is the ideal place!

The Galeries Lafayette Haussmann bookshop is tucked away on the 6th floor. The space has a very clean design and brings together a plethora of references in every field: art, history, politics, novels, comics, manga, travel guides and more. Various topics are divided into different corners. With its breathtaking 360° view over Paris and its many cosy reading areas, you can stroll through and get lost for hours on end. The spot’s peaceful atmosphere invites you to immerse yourself in the world of books. Although autograph sessions take place there regularly (the most recent being that of Amélie Nothomb, on 17 December last year), above all, people spend time discovering new works while also taking full advantage of the terrace.

Fashion books

It’s no wonder Paris is the fashion capital of the world! Among the various corners, the one featuring books on fashion is particularly well stocked. Haute Couture by Megan Hess, How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are by Caroline de Maigret and La Parisienne by Inès de la Fressange are just a small sample. So many works combining precious stylistic advice and fashion statements side by side. English speakers haven’t been forgotten: there’s a whole section of books on Paris fashion in the original English.

Books on art and culture

Not far away is a corner where you can find all the books on exhibitions that have taken place in Paris. There are also books on art, photography and culture, such as Guide du patrimoine près de chez vous  (Guide to Patrimony Near You) by Stéphane Bern and Camille Viéville, The Sacré-Cœur of Montmartre by Emmanuel Cerisier and La France des Rois de France (The France of the French Kings) by Dimitri Casali. 


With restaurants closing due to the various confinements, the French have never spent so much time in the kitchen! So, cookbooks are on the rise and at Galeries Lafayette, you will find the biggest current best sellers, from the recently published book by the Big Mamma group to gourmet recipes from Christophe Michalak or Chef Jean-François Piège. 

Books about Paris

For tourists who want to leave with a literary work on Paris—or simply those who love the City of Light!—the bookshop has a corner dedicated to books that celebrating the capital. Paris, The City of Lights by Dario Cestario et Franca Lugato, Paris by Paul Almasy and Paris: Through a Fashion Eye by Megan Hess are just a few examples of what is available. 

Books about film

Cinephiles will find plenty to occupy them for hours at the Galeries Lafayette bookshop. From Le Paris de Claude Sautet (Claude Sautet’s Paris) by Hélène Rochette to La beauté du ciel (The Sky’s Beauty) by Sarah Biasini and La mode sur grand écran (Fashion on the Big Screen) by Maroussia Dubreuil, whether it’s a collection, a director’s biography or a technical book on the filmmaking process, it’s all there.
