  • Handmade
  • Materials: ink, water color, print

Do you love Paris ?
"ABC Paris" is a delightfully illustrated book about the City of Light which shows great Parisian monuments- one for each letter of the alphabet- from A to Z through a fresh and innovative view from the windows of private apartments. It is an enchanting invitation to Gallic life.

Are you learning the French language?
"ABC Paris" is useful in learning some basics by introducing a unique color method to help memorize the gender of French nouns. Words are instantly recognizable as masculine or feminine because they are color-coded : blue for masculine and red for feminine. The illustrations on the opposite page are colored in bluish tones for masculine words and reddish tones for feminine words. It is possible to learn well over 100 French nouns with the memory method.

You can listen to the correct French pronunciation with the French Phonetic teacher in Paris, Michel Garçon along with the book on the "illustrator in Paris" YouTube.
Truly helpful learning tool for a beginner French student.

Each page of "ABC Paris" is not only a beautiful work of art but a veritable guide as well, imparting the rich history of each monument through short texts.

"ABC Paris" is the perfect book for Francophiles who are as curious about "LA VILLE LUMIÈRE" as they are about "LA LANGUE FRANÇAISE".

"ABC Paris" is both an educational and charming book. It is also a unique souvenir or gift.

A book filled with the most charming illustrations. Delightful. I speak French so a little elementary for me; it would benefit a beginner. Having said that, I still love it because the drawings are so beautiful!! Arrived in perfect condition, too.

ABC Paris is a whimsical, visual delight! Each page is a "room with a view" of Paris through which I can learn a new French noun and its correct gender. The glossy pages are gorgeous...who knew an educational product could look so good!

The Most Artistic illustration book I've ever seen. The artist also sent a personal note along with her original illustration card. It is a great gift item.
