The Big Apple

Papercuts » J’adore Paris vs. I ♥ NY? To Each City its Own…

November 3, 2010


It’s the City of Lights against The Big Apple – and this battle is a sight to behold! We’re talking, of course, about Paris Versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities, the charming blog started recently by Paris-based art director and graphic designer Vahram Muratya. He calls it “a friendly visual match” between the two cities, comparing their details, clichés and contradictions. The simple side-by-side graphics demonstrate the cities’ differences — from the look of la façade to the shape of le pain. It’s a quirky, delightful tribute to two beloved cities – and quite frankly, Lo’s List can’t get enough!

Since the kickass crew at Cool Hunting first mentioned it, Paris Versus New York has been winning internet fans the world over. The infant site has been inundated with love notes and suggested comparisons — and there’s also been more than a few requests to make Muratya’s work available for purchase. Yesterday he noted on the site that Paris Versus New York will be “printed soon, in some way or another.” Whether that means posters or booklets, we’re not sure. Just get them to Gotham so we can show some hometown love! Bisous!
