Jean-Paul Goude/Paris!

I bought this book 'cause I love the cover. Paris graphics are terrific.
 No one does it better in Paris than Jean-Paul Goude

It's impossible to take a Metro without meeting up with Goude enroute.

Goude is amazing! That book...it appears to be in French...so even the French have to study to be Parisian?

That was a great post! I enjoyed every image, and will keep an eye out for those posters in the metro in a couple of weeks...Thanks.

The how to become a Parisienne IS in French but any nincompoop can figure it out - basically where to buy stuff, where to eat, where to get yr nails done etc.
The deeper, darker secrets of inner Frenchiness are elusive comme habitude :(

Adorable as usual PB

Goude is just plain delicious!
Strike out the plain.

Nothing plain about him and everything fanciful!

Fun, Carol! Happy Labor day! It's getting ready to storm here--you can see it brewing. I'll pretend I'm grilling out, how's that!? I'm making chicken piccata. (Not exactly Labor Day fare, but it's what I have here!)

Love this artist!!!! I'll bet he is the same one that did the model with the Eiffel Tower on her head...LOVE IT! Merci!

San Francisco radio station KFOG used to sell T-shirts that read, "Use an accordion, go to jail." Photo #4 certainly casts that instrument in a different light.

Love these images.

I'd like to write more things in lipstick on that guy's chest...

When I was a young Illustrator, way back when, I remember Goude's work as always being so very creative, inventive, and surprising.
A true Renaissance man.
