Paris versus New York - my new favourite picture book

Love Paris? Love New York? Well, some clever graphic designer does too and had the brilliant idea to compare major landmarks/style in the two cities by way of the graphic to create a beautiful read (well, not exactly read as there are no words,but you know what I mean). I love the connections and the simplicity of the whole concept. If ever I feel like my brain is about to explode, a quick leaf through this and normal??? service is resumed.

My favourites are Carrie (Bradshaw) vs Amelie (Poulain), Josephine (Baker) versus Liza, Sonia (Rykiel) vs Anna (Wintour). The Woody and Godard is pretty cool too. I have picked characters but the book compares many famous buildings/landmarks.

I can't call it - I love them both. Ok Paris at a push :)

There is a larger version available which has an extra thirty additional pairings, for only a few pounds more, and also a Postcard Box which makes a really nice present.
