Herb Lester

"Paris: Small Shops" City Map

$8.00

A guide to the most interesting specialist retailers in France's capital, Paris. It features the best of these establishments, on grand boulevards, in elegant covered passages and tucked away in back streets; some date back hundreds of years, others are newly founded, with all the vigour and enthusiasm of youth. 

Among the 40 entries are places to buy essentials, luxuries and curiosities. There’s stationery and art supplies, scented candles and soap, toys, rat traps, and taxidermy.

The Facts:

  • Designed by Crispin Finn and written by Anne Ditmeyer
  • A3 (11.7" x 16.5") wide open; A6 (4.1" x 5.8") nicely folded :-)
  • Litho-printed in England on recycled paper
The Story:
London-based Herb Lester Associates publish guides for tourists and locals: witty, pretty, curious and opinionated.   We believe now is the golden age of cartography and perhaps no where is that more exemplified than in the work of Herb Lester guides, maps, and books.
