50 spots in Paris

Artist Ami Sioux had an amazing book idea: She asked fifty Paris residents to sketch maps to places that were important to them in their everyday lives. She then followed the maps and photographed the destinations. Doesn’t her book make you want to hop a plane? You can order it here.

P.S. Who knew Paris had waterfalls?
P.P.S. My favorite place would be Itineraires restaurant.
P.P.P.S. She also did a book about Iceland!

  1. perfect. when i travel i like to experience life like the locals do. makes me want to try and get to paris while i am here too!!

  2. The park with the waterfall is Buttes Chaumont, I believe? It’s beautiful. I loved it. :)
