Paris Versus New York Postcard Box: A Tally of Two Cities in 100 Postcardsby Vahram Muratyan
Synopses & Reviews
A witty homage to both the Big Apple and the City of Lights, this collection of 50 visual comparisons between the two cities will delight anyone who appreciates well-observed illustrations of urban life (in the tradition of Robinson's New York Line By Line, and Matteo Pericoli's New York Unfurled).
Based on the blog Paris Versus New York (parisvsnyc.blogspot.com) and an upcoming book (Penguin, Fall '11), this box of postcards is a love letter to two of the most inspiring cities in the world. In his crisp, minimalist style, artist Vahram Muratyan presents side-by-side comparisons of cultural touchstones such as the Eiffel Tower vs. the Statue of Liberty, a glass of Bordeaux vs. a Cosmo, the Baguette vs. the Bagel, and Jean Luc Godard vs. Woody Allen (represented only by their iconic eye glasses).
Perfectly sized for capturing all your andldquo;to-dos,andrdquo; this set of striped notebooks is a chic accessory for every tote bag or purse. The three notebooks are sold as a set and are tied together with colored string (one is lined, one is blank, and one has graph paper). The covers are foil stamped and printed to look dip-dyedandmdash;a subtle update on an otherwise timeless design.and#160;
Like a classic French striped shirt, this journal will go with everything and can travel anywhere. It is foil-stamped and gilded to look gold-dipped, and it’s ruled pages feature a distinctive ombré effect (a chic update on an otherwise timeless design).
