The pocket-sized Bonjour map-guides―made of waterresistant, tear-proof paper―feature rare and soulful places that exude an enviable je ne sais quoi. From bakeries to taco trucks, bicycle rentals to antiques shops, or boutiques to toy stores, each recommendation includes a succinct anecdote, tip, or description― illustrated by Marin Montagut’s watercolor travel sketches―to tempt bon vivants everywhere. In Bonjour Paris, say “bon appétit!” in an authentic bistro, stock your kitchen with artisanal knives, or track down a vintage Chanel bag. Featured districts include the heart of Paris (1st/2nd); Pigalle and Montmartre (9th/18th); the Marais (3rd/4th); Saint-Germain-des-Prés (5th/6th); Canal Saint-Martin (10th); and Bastille and Oberkampf (11th/12th/20th). These unique and charming guides from Parisian tastemaker Marin Montagut offer a genuine and refined tour of the world capitals.
