Review

"Every page offers a tempting taste of Paris and its allure. Très charmant." -- USA Today

"I thought there'd be no way she could outdo herself, but I was so wrong!... it's the type of book you beg and plead and hope will never end." -- Susan Blumberg-Kason, author of Good Chinese Wife

"[A] lovely portrayal of the romantic city...[Janice MacLeod] has a great eye for the city's beauty, capturing those precious moments that locals probably take for granted (and that an outsider never does)."--Cheryl Yanek, Library Journal

"Part Paris guidebook/part memoir/part visual candy store. As much a treat for the eyes as for the soul. A Paris Year is a must for anyone who loves Paris." --Lisa Anselmo, author of My (Part-Time) Paris Life: How Running Away Brought Me Home

"With whimsical illustrations, captivating photographs, and a diary-format that hooks you from the start, Janice's journey of a year in Paris is downright magical. A wonderful read!" --Lindsey Tramuta, journalist and author of The New Paris

"Through art, photography, and a wonderful voice that shines right off the pages, MacLeod takes the reader on a creative journey straight into the heart of the City of Lights. Warm, spirited, and inviting, A Paris Year is the kind of beautiful book you want to hug against your chest." --Samantha Vérant, author of Seven Letters from Paris and How to Make a French Family

Product Description

There are many guide books to Paris, but the gorgeously illustrated A PARIS YEAR is a guide book not just for those walking the streets of the City of Light but for the armchair traveller, the dreamer, the person who has been to Paris and wants to reminisce.

When Janice MacLeod arrived in Paris, she brought her talents for writing, illustration and photography with her. She also met Christophe, who became her reason to stay in Paris.

In A PARIS YEAR, Janice charts the moods, changes and charms of Paris through her words, paintings and photos. The book is set over the course of a calendar year and it covers food, buildings, historical figures, places of interest and local characters. There is Hemingway, Robespierre, the author's local boulangerie, flea markets, what Paris is like when the locals come home after la rentrée, and a handy cheat sheet to help you distinguish Napoleon B from Napoleon III; there is macaron day and Le Bon Marché. In short: all the details of Paris that make the city unique and captivating.
