Based on the blog Paris Versus New York (parisvsnyc.blogspot.com) and an upcoming book (Penguin, Fall '11), this box of postcards is a love letter to two of the most inspiring cities in the world. In his crisp, minimalist style, artist Vahram Muratyan presents side-by-side comparisons of cultural touchstones such as the Eiffel Tower vs. the Statue of Liberty, a glass of Bordeaux vs. a Cosmo, the Baguette vs. the Bagel, and Jean Luc Godard vs. Woody Allen (represented only by their iconic eye glasses).

I adore/J'adore this postcard set! A picture really is worth a thousand words in this set, which visually depicts the differences between New York and Paris. The graphic approach is light and fresh, and the content ranges from the more serious and concrete (buildings, seasons) to the more whimsical and abstract (Man on Wire/Spiderman and Amelia/Carrie). It's a great alternative to the book, and the postcard format is perfect for framing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
