A little bit of Paris in New York

The witty, minimalist Paris/New York comparison dessins by Parisian-born graphic designer Vahram Muratyan are spot on. So clever. I had seen the original blog on the Interwebs – ’twas love at first sight (same for many I expect) – so I jumped at the chance to get a signed (and embossed, as it turns out) copy when my design-loving friend Michelle told me about the event at The Standard last night. Getting out of work at 5:30 to attend wasn’t too bad either.

We got there just as the line was bulking up with French expats. What a scene of well-heeled, artsy, bourgeois types. There was copious double-cheek kissing. I love these events just for the people watching really (otherwise standing in a line for an hour would not tickle my fancy). Vahram was very gracious (also very man chic – see the eggplant velvet blazer?) and seemed pleasantly surprised by my French greeting… or maybe I’m just kidding myself. I read through the whole book last night, chuckling and still marveling at the cleverness as I crowned my art book stack with it. If you’re a Francophile or know one, you should probably go get this book (phenomenal gift) – funny, beautiful and only $20. What’s not to love (except for not having a trip to Paris planned in the near future)?
