Macaron Bookmark, original watercolor 9" x 11"
One of the fun things to do in Paris is haunt bookstores... French guides to Paris are bound to have more secrets lurking within.I love this series by PARISGRAMME - not hard to figure out no matter how meager your Fr. + only 100 pages long. And they fit nicely in your handbag. I have the chocolate + tea salon of this series(6 Euros). I love are the CARNET DE PARIS by Equinoxe. Little sketchbooks of the different arrondissements in Paris. I bought this cookbook with high hopes. HA! My baking skills are nill but the pictures are nice....In French so you get a lecon thrown in.Sometimes I take quickie shots of pictures that inspire me. What is it about jam jars - Nostalgia for times past? If I see an inspiring watercolor how-to book I'll grab a shot, this one in W.H.Smith on rue de Rivoli near Angelina. They always have the latest Brit how-to books.The French version of a Jean Dobie book - I was hoping this could jump-start my painting in Paris... I love the cover of this catalog in Galignani's on rue de Rivoli... I bought Art Buchwald's book this morning on Amazon for $0.01. Long overdue reading it. Do you have favorite books you've bought in Paris?
