These same little blackboards or slates are how all French children learn their ABCs. Marie-Noelle knows of my efforts to learn French handwriting..
As it happens, M-N tutors children in cursive handwriting. Here she demonstrates her exquisite handwriting in my chaotic studio in the Marais.As much as I love maps, I am gaga over these little blackboards menus/menus ardoises.To me they're more symbolic of Paris than the Eiffel Tour...And you can puruse at your leisure. I love the broad expressive brush used on this menu.
Isn't it just the worse thing in the world when a restaurant has NO MENU outside to study over? It shows a complete lack of imagination on their part in my opinion.
I saw ardoises them everywhere. Not just at restaurants.
A chic boutique is using an ardoise style to show it's prices.
At La Mere de Famille chocolate boutique -an ALL-chocolate ardoise for back-to-school children to make the return less painful.
Not an ardoise at all - just a scrap of paper announcing the tragic news that L'as du Fallafel would not be opening until October 16. A big wait for a fallafel - NOT FAIR!
