Editorial Reviews

Review

"The brilliant minds at Obvious State just made us fall in love with Paris all over again." Elle Magazine 

"Co-authors Evan and Nichole Robertson pull back those fine French gossamer curtains to give us a rare treat: a full day's meandering through a single neighborhood. This sans-itinerary virtual escape captures the essential spirit of City of Light as no guidebook can." Instyle Magazine


"Nichole and Evan Robertson are two of the most talented people I know and they've finally put their heads together to create the ultimate fictionalized Parisian escape. If Nichole's gorgeous photos don't grab you, the impossibly charming narrative of a perfect day spent in Paris will. Fair warning: I guarantee you'll be searching for last-minute fares by the time you reach the last page." Vince Camuto

"A unique type of travelogue combining the eyes of a photographer, graphic artist, and diarist makes for an entertaining afternoon of reading and perusing." Lee Razor, Goodreads Librarian 

"Funny. Beautiful. Captivating. The Paris Journal is unlike anything I've ever read. This isn't a story for the person looking for the usual Paris. Or a broad tale of stereotypes and expected locales. Instead, this book takes the reader on a day-long journey that explores hidden gems within a section of the city often forgotten by tourists (Notre Dame excepting) seen through the eyes of an intelligent, soulful and humorous American. She eats, drinks, and creates imaginary lives for the locales around her. I couldn't stop reading from beginning to end. And more than anything, the poetic language and gorgeous, scene-setting photographs made me want to leap on the first plane to Paris to follow her journey step to step. I can't wait for the next installment to see where the next installment will take her." --Amazon Reader AWellReadWoman

From the Author

Our goal with The Paris Journal has always been to provide a fun escape. There are plenty of wonderful guidebooks and articles about what to do and see in Paris, but that's not what The Paris Journal is. We wanted the reader experience to be voyeuristic, a virtual trip, a fly-on-the-wall moment. We hope you enjoy it!

I couldn't put down this down! The combination of gorgeous photos and vignettes work together brilliantly to create a seamless narrative arc over the course of a day in Paris. I highly recommend it for any lover of Paris or travel, or just anyone looking for a beautiful and fun afternoon or evening read.

Just returned from Paris? Longing for your return? Anticipating your visit? This is the book for you.
Not your standard guidebook but an excellent encapsulation of the essence of the incomparable city of light.
Take a day. Skip the lines. Slow down. Savor. Your soul will thank you.
I didn't take many pictures. I'm glad because these are the pictures I would have wanted.
Thank you Nichole and Evan for the memories. This book would be a bargain at triple the price.

Format: Paperback
As with an excellent wine or a decadent French pastry, The Paris Journal is a treat to be savored! Start with the wonderful matte cover and lovely, tactile paper (I really dislike fingerprints on glossy covers and images). Linger on each of Nichole's gorgeous photos for a truly unique Parisian perspective -- not a clichéd Eiffel Tower in site. Indulge in the imaginative musings of a jet-lagged American as she spends one day strolling along the Ile de Cité and the Ile Saint Louis, satisfying her cravings for French delicacies, and inventing quirky scenarios for the locals she keenly observes.

The French embrace indulgence while recognizing the necessity of moderation: just one small boule of really good ice cream, a generous slathering of salted butter on your baguette but only for breakfast, a warm croissant or pain au chocolate on a weekend morning, one lovely glass of Champagne or Bordeaux; but sometimes, it is far too tempting not to have just a little bit more. I had a hard time not devouring all of The Paris Journal in one sitting. I had to summon that French willpower to recognize that overindulgence diminishes the delightful anticipation of another opportunity to enjoy such pleasures. Happily, this is only the first book in The Paris Journal series. I look forward to continuing this narrative and photographic stroll through the city that will forever tempt me to return.

Wittingly written this companion - guide is the perfect read for those traveling to Paris but also those who have been there and want to re live the experience! The photography adds a bonus to the text. I' d suggest you take a walk in it's pages.

my first solo travel to Paris is in couple of weeks, this narratives has given me a bit of confidence, it's not as intimidating as I picture it will be. it's a good short entertaining book.
