Bonjour, mes amis! I’m so excited today to share a glimpse of an enchanting confection of a new book, PastryParis by Susan Hochbaum. It’s perfect for those who love Paris and pâtisserie (that is, tout le monde).
As the book’s subtitle says, “in Paris everything looks like dessert.” Author and graphic designer Susan Hochbaum has cleverly juxtaposed the city’s sweetest treats with its iconic architecture, landmarks, and urban and artistic details. From gas caps to the dome of Sacre Coeur, nothing has escaped her sugared lens.
But the book isn’t merely empty calories! In the back is a pastry guide, providing les bonnes adresses (+ telephone numbers and métros) for all the models pictured.
Isn’t Paris sweet, mes amis? What’s your favorite pâtisserie? I love éclairs au chocolat and financiers.
Susan will speaking in Paris at WH Smith on October 20, and signing copies of her delightful book. For more details, or to learn about other signings in the New York City area, visit her website.
