For the first time, the cities of
Los Angeles and Paris are illustrated in parallel.
A one-of-a-kind collectible art book, travel guide and personal journey that compares
and contrasts the history, culture, architecture, fashion, cuisine and daily life of two of the
most iconic cities on the planet. Each of the illustrations by artists Eric Giriat ( Paris ) and Nick Lu ( LA ) are works of art in their own right, but the colorful compilation reveals the
two cities in a way that has never been seen before. The personal stories and commentary
by author Diane Ratican celebrates “her cities” in a delightfully original narrative that
portrays the stark differences of the two grand metropolises, while also revealing
striking and surprising similarities.
Experience the cultural milieu
of these two distinguished cities.
The Pasadena based author has been invited to appear at many book signing events and locations throughout Southern California and Paris, France to celebrate the release of her new art book and pay homage to two iconic metropolises: Los Angeles and Paris.
