I adored Janice Macleod’s previous book Paris Letters, which I featured during Paris Month a 3 years ago. In her first book, she talked about creating a life she loved by starting a business drawing and writing letters to people around the world. I’m very excited for her new upcoming book A Paris Year: My Day-to-Day Adventures in the Most Romantic City in the World. I’m going to guess that she probably painted the gorgeous cover of this new book!
A Paris Year
by Janice Macleod
Part memoir and part visual journey through the streets of modern-day Paris, France, A Paris Year chronicles, day by day, one woman’s French sojourn in the world’s most beautiful city. Beginning on her first day in Paris, Janice MacLeod, the author of the best-selling book, Paris Letters, began a journal recording in illustrations and words, nearly every sight, smell, taste, and thought she experienced in the City of Light. The end result is more than a diary: it’s a detailed and colorful love letter to one of the most romantic and historically rich cities on earth. Combining personal observations and anecdotes with stories and facts about famous figures in Parisian history, this visual tale of discovery, through the eyes of an artist, is sure to delight, inspire, and charm.
A Paris Year is available June 20, 2017
