I guess a lot of us are still big kids at heart, especially when it comes to Paris!

'This is San Francisco' It's the very reason why I live in San Francisco to this day.
Thank you, M. Sasek.
The childhood favorite still graces my book shelf..
Cable car ride to the stars.
Ding! Ding!

This is Paris.
This is London.
This is New York.
This is Edinburgh.
Were all childhood favourites of mine bought by my father, a graphic designer, and yes I still have them.
I'm rather ashamed to say that living in the UK the only place I have never visited is Edinburgh! Must remedy that soon.

I skimmed your description and got to the review part that raved, "Gaily modern are the half-caricatured people and the design..." and I thought, "gaily modern? This looks wonderfully midcentury modern to me!" Then I went back to the preceding paragraph and saw it was indeed depicting 1950s Paris. Aha.

This is still gaily modern, actually. Charmante!

I love this book. Taking another look at the pages in this way this makes me think I should buy myself a second copy and frame a page or two .. .
