Tapestry of the Fontaine Saint-Sulpice covering the Marché Poésie, France

The Marché Poésie fills the Place Saint Sulpice in front of the famous church each spring. This also covers the beautiful Fontaine Saint-Sulpice (alternatively known as the Fountain of the Orators or the Fountain of the Bishops) so the poets placed a picture of the fountain where you would normally actually see it. A nice idea but the fountain is prettier. The Marché Poésie is great fun if you are ever in Paris while it is happening. Stop and chat with the vendors and you may be given a free book . . . in French of course.
