Ma Vie a Paris is a city guide unlike any other. Curated by the cofounders of beloved Parisian candle and ceramics maker Astier de Villate, this book is filled with the authors’ personal favorite spots in the City of Light. Arranged alphabetically, you’ll find all the typical recommendations, like hotels, restaurants, museums, cafes and bars. But you’ll also discover more unexpected, off-the-radar suggestions — the city’s best bowling alley, tattoo parlor, rose garden and magic shop; where to catch a puppet show or a 19th century-style home orchestra performance; and who to call when you find yourself in need of a detective, a locksmith or a taxi-driving knife sharpener. Each location is captured in a brief yet clever description, complete with an address and contact information. These descriptions are interspersed with color photographs of select locations and followed by hand drawn maps of each quarter, noting where each listed spot can be found. Also included in this boxed set is Ma Vie Aux Puces — a handy guide to shopping the sprawling Saint-Ouen Flea Market. Both books are typeset on gilt-edged pages using a mid-20th century Linotype machine — a pretty, minimal design that allows any visitor to blend right in with the locals. Perfect for tourists and lifetime residents alike, Ma Vie a Paris is a must-have for anyone looking for a one-of-a-kind way to experience Paris.
