11821530Hardcover, 224 pages

Published January 31st 2012 by Penguin Books

A friendly visual match between two cities told by a lover of Paris wandering through New York. Details, clichés, contradictions: this way, please.

This is such a great book. It has lovely, simple yet effective graphics comparing Paris and New York. The author was born and grew up in Paris, but lived in New York too.

It’s fun and interesting to see the different cultures of these two great cities laid out visually. For example, the first one is a little expresso cup on a saucer for Paris and a giant take away americano for New York.

I didn’t get some of them, as I haven’t been to New York or Paris, but I still really enjoyed it. Paris versus New York is a wonderful little book to flick through when you have some spare time on your hands.
