Paris Small Shops : Herb Lester Map Guide
I’m so excited to announce my latest project: a Paris Small Shops map guide! Herb Lester makes the coolest maps, so it was such an honor when they reached out to me late last year to work on one for Paris. I wrote the guide, curating the the 40 shops, both new and old, while the amazing team of Crispin Finn illustrated it (all of their work is red and blue, which is so cool!). The best part was that we all got to meet when I was in London in February, which truly felt like a match made in heaven. The crazy thing is this is the first Herb Lester map they’ve made where the entire team has met together in the same room, as they work with talented folks around the world (both the Herb Lester and Crispin Finn teams are British). I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! And while so much of Paris – and the world – sometimes feels the same to me these days, I’m thrilled to celebrate these places that are truly one of a kind. I hope they’ll stay in business forever :)
A perfect pocket-sized travel companion or souvenir, Paris Small Shops celebrates 40 of the best independent specialty shops in Paris! You can pick up your own copy on herblester.com (only 4£!). They’re hot off of the presses, so they may not be in shops just yet. If you’d like to see it stocked in your local shop be sure to let them know!
