Description

A chic and humorous visual homage to two of the world's most iconic cities.

When Vahram Muratyan began his online travel journal, Paris versus New York, he had no idea how quickly it would become one of the most buzzed-about sites on the Internet-it garnered more than a million and a half page views in just a few months, and the attention of savvy online critics. Now Muratyan presents his unique observations in this delightful book, featuring visually striking graphics paired with witty, thought-provoking taglines that celebrate the special details of each city. Paris versus New York is a heartfelt gift to denizens of both cities and to those who dream of big-city romance.

Praise For Paris versus New York

"In his witty, high-concept, high-colored flipbook “Paris Versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities” ...Mr. Muratyan uses splashy collagist art to showcase the visual beauty marks of the two metropolises."
-The New York Times
