My husband and I have a tradition of giving each other books for Valentine's Day. I think the book "Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities" by Vahram Muratyan is Valentine worthy. Muratyan began a blog lauding the differences of these two world famous cities, and it was so popular that he turned it into a book. It compares the two cities through the use of colorful and bold graphics and witty titles. I posted some of my favorites below.
Even Merci got in on the fun with an installation appropriately called "Merci aime Paris" celebrating the book. I snapped a few photos of it when I was at the store last summer. The book is not only sold at Merci, but it is available online and at most major bookstores.
