Eyrolles, boulevard Saint Germain in Paris. The best place in Paris (and probably in the World) for technical books, particularly about computers and graphics.
From the 1980's to 2000's,it was the main French publisher and bookstore
for computing. Perhaps the best in the world, since McGraw Hill New-York
has closed its shop around 2005. But in the 2010's, the computing department
is shrinking. Two other computing specialist bookshops in Paris have closes,
the last one (Le Monde en Tique) in 2015. In 2016, this activity had ended,
due to the decline of technical books for computer geeks and users.
