Here’s the latest post to my new blog Paris Illustré, featuring my illustrations of Paris (and some other spots). I hope you’ll go have a look and enjoy!
The way the Eiffel Tower pops up in views from all over the city has been a reliable source of amusement for me through the years: “Oh, there it is again!” (I know, it doesn’t take much.) While you expect to see la Tour in panoramic vistas, sometimes you’ll catch a glimpse peeking out over some rooftops, between a narrow gap in buildings, or through some trees. Henri Riviere’s Thirty-Six Views of the Eiffel Tower captures this phenomenon–and the Paris of his day–beautifully.
