Inspired by the popularity of French graphic artist Vahram Muratyan's original "Paris versus New York" book, here is an expanded large-trim edition with more than thirty additional new pairings of iconic images from the City of Lights and the Big Apple. This deluxe edition is a great gift for those who love the warmth and wit of Maira Kalman and Christoph Neimann's "I Lego New York", the design-savvy eye of "The Sartorialist", and the adventurous imagination of "The Atlas of Remote Islands". Muratyan's visually striking graphics paired with witty, thought-provoking taglines celebrate the special details of each city-favorites of denizens from both cities and those happily torn in between.

Review quote
