... and for those of you who happen to be in Paris and require something a little more thought-provoking and pedagogic, the wonderfully tragic Deyrolle hosts a show with photographs by Martin d'Orgeval.

If you've never heard of the Deyrolle and its sad devastation by fire last year, please click here.

The exhibition is entitled Touché par le feu and illustrates the compelling, bittersweet beauty of destruction and will make you understand just how much it takes to restore this beautiful Parisian palace of taxidermy to its former splendour and glory.
