About

The story behind Paris Letters

I send painted letters to those who crave fun mail. Most letters are about life in Paris but my wanderlust has led to a Travel Letter series as well. I create a piece of art each month, then write a letter on it. I copy the letter, personalize each copy (Dear Jane, Dear Spence, Dear YOU), and send it out snail-mail style to those who like to see a sweet surprise in their mailbox.

BOOKS
My new book A PARIS YEAR, is a travel journal of my days and nights in Paris.

My book, PARIS LETTERS, is about how I came to create the letters you'll find here in the shop. I'm pleased and delighted that it made it onto the New York Times best seller list. Once falling for a charming butcher and deciding to hang my beret in Paris, I had to come up with a way to afford my new life. These letters are the result and have been shared around the globe with lovers of letters and of Paris.

“Janice’s journey of a year in Paris is downright magical. A wonderful read!” –Lindsey Tramuta, journalist and author of The New Paris

“As much a treat for the eyes as for the soul. A Paris Year is a must for anyone who loves Paris.” –Lisa Anselmo, author of My (Part-Time) Paris Life: How Running Away Brought Me Home

"Charming ... How memorist Janice MacLeod rewrote her life story, one gorgeously illustrated letter at a time" - FLARE Magazine

"How letters from Paris led one Canadian to a new career (and created a fantastic Christmas gift idea for everyone)" ELLE Magazine

"Aspirational fiction? No, a true story to inspire similar dreamers out there." - NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
