Les Zizis de Paris, several years ago, I was smitten. Not because of the subject per se (though what's not to love?!), but because I delighted in imagining a similar book in an Anglo-Saxon museum bookshop. Maybe there is one and I just don't know about it, but I'm not holding my breath.

Zizi is the French equivalent of wee-wee, or weenie or what-have-you. I find it quite adorable as a name for male parts.
I found this charming and entertaining photography book in a museum store of one of the museums of the city of Paris. Not hidden hush-hush in a brown wrapper in a corner, but prominently displayed with other guides to Paris. And indeed, it is a pictorial guide to male nude public statues. What? Oh yes, of course I bought it!
