My sister is a big fan of my blog, and I'm constantly tapping her for ideas and suggestions. Earlier this week she sent me a link to the recently published Paris: Made by Hand by Pia Jane Bijerk.
What a lovely little book! Less than six inches square in size, it feels more like a child's book than one written by an international stylist. And, like a children's book, it is filled with whimsy and delight and images that will transport you.
Here's what the author has to say:
"This is a book for lovers of all things handmade, the chic and unique, and of course Paris. In this book I take you off the tourist streets of this incredible city in search of Parisian artisans whose work is truly inspirational, and secreted studio boutiques filled with exquisite Parisian handmade treasures. I’ve been collecting these special addresses in my stylist’s little black book over the past couple of years and now with great delight, share them all with you in Paris: Made by Hand. Expect to see this fine city in a whole new light . . ."
