Jean Jullien, Petit Appétit

Collaboration is one of those words that has come to be overused, or used in the wrong way (particularly when you’re a blogger and get asked to do a million things for nothing). But when it’s done right, it can be awesome. Case in point, French illustrator Jean Jullien‘s latest collaboration with Fricote Magazine, a French urban food magazine published in French and English, and Colette, the long running Paris concept store in the 1st. Jean’s latest work, Petit Appétit, a playful look at food, was for a double show at Colette, and l’Imprimerie with a handful of other delectable collaborations embedded in it. If you’re in town, definitely stop by l’Imprimerie (16 rue Saint Merri 75004, near Centre Pompidou) while the show is still up for the next two weeks. And if you’re not in Paris, I put together this post to give you a taste of Petit Appétit!
