paris versus new york

I’ve been following Vahram Muratyan’s blog, Paris vs NYC, for a while, and now it’s in book form. People call it a sort of “online travel journal,” but it’s a lot more exciting than that. Muratyan is a graphic designer with a cheeky sense of humor and a clean, minimalistic aesthetic. His playful pairings of iconic images from the two cities generally have a ring of truth to them, for better or for worse. (Winter in Paris? Miserable. I’ve spent enough Februaries there to know Muratyan’s depiction of “météo” in Paris is true. And if I had a dime for every time I heard an American in Paris craving a bagel…)  Some classics below:
