Views of Lyon is intended both for local people and those just passing through. It provides a glimpse of different quartiers, in a spiral trajectory that goes from the Lumière brothers’ house to the Palais Saint-Pierre, crossing the Rhône and the Saône. There are visits to Gerland, the Confluence, Fourvière, the Croix-Rousse, the Part-Dieu and the old city. The journey ends in what is now the centre of Lyon, Place des Terreaux. The affectionate, perceptive drawings are by Vincent Brunot, who has carried out the same exercise in Venice, Marseille and Ile de Ré. The accompanying lively vignettes, by Laurent Bonzon, give a contemporary perspective on this major European city, which is a UNESCO world heritage site.
