Review

If you can't make it to Paris for this week's shows, relish in the City of Lights' charms vicariously through one artist's works. Renowned New Yorker cartoonist Jean-Jacques Sempé's new book of illustrations, A Little Bit of Paris, takes its audience there without the transatlantic flight. Parisian streets, cafes, and parks come to life on page and add sentimental value to the phrase: We'll always have Paris--at least on your bookshelf. (A Little Bit of Paris, $25, at amazon.com) -- Elle.com October 2007

Format: Hardcover
When I was in Paris I searched for a souvenir that would encompass the panorama of the place and the spirit of delight that fills you when you stand, for instance, at the center of the Pont des Arts and take in the view above, below and all around you. This book was the answer. It shares better than photographs the way it feels to be there. I have returned to it many times and it has never failed to bring back my joy in this city.

Sempe is amazing. Going slowly through this book is like taking a walk in the Paris one remembers. Every so often, he gets a hearty laugh from me.

This is a lovely book and interesting, graphically. Unfortunately, I bought it for my 15-year-old grand daughter, who may not appreciate the many subtleties. I will keep it for her, as she loves the idea of Paris and should soon grow into the book!
