    One thought on “Paris Versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities”

    1. If you like modern graphic design that tends to be on the humorous side, you may like this. Stereotypes (accurate or not) and art seem to mesh together quite well. The references are alright. As clichéd as it sounds, it was nice to see my favourite film Amélie mentioned. It definitely brings back memories of time spent in each city.

    2. This is a cute picture book with fun graphics and barely any words. It’s the type of book that would make a nice gift or something fun to browse through in the doctor’s waiting room or whatever, but not necessarily worth buying for oneself. I’ve lived in New York and have visited Paris. It was nice to experience some nostalgia and smile at all the memories.

    3. Fofo, mas saiba o que está comprandoEu tinha me interessado por esse livro há um tempo nas minhas andanças pelas recomendações do GoodReads, mas imaginava algo completamente diferente. Sabia que era um livro ilustrado, mas nunca pensei que fosse apenas ilustrado.Paris versus New York traz ilustrações comparativas de peculiaridades das duas cidades, como a diferença entre seus cafés, seus pães, seus museus e costumes.As gravuras seguem sempre o mesmo estilo, cheio de cores e figuras sem [...]

    4. A clever little illustrated comparison between New York and Paris. Brings back memories. Not all good.To hell with pigeons.

    5. Muratyan uses incredible, unique graphics to compare and contrast two of the greatest cities in the world. Using minimal words, he describes to you the similarities and differences between New York City and Paris. It's a great gift for someone who loves both cities (like I do).

    6. This is a perfect coffee table book that is fun to look through when in need for inspiration. It is full of illustrations that describe common attributes of the two cities. From seasons and views, to food and traffic patterns, this colorful look cleverly compares what people may love about Paris, New York or both.

    7. Livro para ter na mesa de centro da sala de casa. Lindo de olhar, divertido e informativo. A visão de um designer sensível sobre as diferenças culturais entre Paris e Nova York. Dá para ler mil vezes, não fica chato nunca.

    8. Génial, chouette / Wonderful, just brilliant!Pour amoureux de Paris and lovers of NY, a great design et des références absolument parfaites.Loved chaque page! ;-)

    9. Ohh, precioso, una comparativa entre dos ciudades (y qué ciudades) a través de imágenes emblemáticas y fácilmente reconocibles de estas dos maravillosas ciudades. Me ha encantado!

    10. I might be that one person who has never seen Muratyan's blog prior to purchasing this book. The book came to my attention at the recommendation of another. All I was told was that it was a blogger's interpretation of Paris and New York City and how his comparison between the two cities. Having visited both cities previously, I was intrigued. I picked up the book at a local independent bookshop that had the text featured next to the cash register. I still had no idea what I was in for as the cas [...]

    11. What I found most intriguing about this book was that I have been to Paris, but never New York, and yet I recognized more of the locations in The Big Apple. Could this be that my love for 30 Rock and How I Met Your Mother has caused me to know more about a city than actually visiting? I was depressed at first, but then I remembered what I learned on my trip to Paris:If you see a bum sleeping in a Metro station around 9 am, he will still be there sleeping when you get off at that station around 1 [...]

    12. TCL Call number: 741.6092 MURATYAN VStephanie’s rating: 5 starsWhen you combine two of the most historical and breathtaking cities in the world what do you get? Hmm…”Paris Versus New York” of course…and a lot of chucking. You know, as it turns out this book is quite the information polestar. Author Vahram Muratyan, a Paris native, created a very VISUAL comparison of the two cities. From monumental buildings, exquisite food habits, notable figures, to saturated clichés about the people [...]

    13. When you combine two of the most historical and breathtaking cities in the world what do you get? Hmm…”Paris Versus New York” of course. An unusual book it is, mainly because it requires a lot of chuckling, and as it turns out it’s quite the information polestar. Author Vahram Muratyan, a Paris native, created a very visual comparison of the two cities. From monumental buildings, exquisite food habits, notable figures, to saturated clichés about the people who inhabit these two magnific [...]

    14. This is yet another blog-to-book stuff, which rely on solid, colorful, visual. Nearly every visual was already posted in Muratyan blog, but for "traditional" reader like me, it's always different if you see them printed on papers. Muratyan first got the idea for the blog while sitting in the New York subway, watching the train entered the darkened tunnel and people walked past hurriedly. In the book's introduction, it is stated that "The universal appeal these two cultural capitals have takes me [...]

    15. This book is amazing. Especially for anyone studying design and who knows what diagrams are. The images are spectacular and carry the message perfectly. It is in French, but even if you don't speak the language you will be able to understand what the message is. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in city planning/organization. Even if you are just interested in comparing the two cities through history and layout and culture. It is an interesting book and expecially valuable [...]

    16. This came across my desk at work and I spent an enjoyable twenty minutes flipping through it. The premise is simple: a graphic illustration of a concept as seen in Paris and as seen in New York. For example, one spread shows a cut-out of a pigeon, the subtitle reading "rat volant" and on the opposite page is a cut-out of a rat, its subtitle reading "wingless pigeon." I mostly liked it from a sociological point of view, how the same object, i.e. a cup of coffee, can be seen differently via a cult [...]

    17. "Usando ilustrações e apenas isso (claro, que tem uma ou duas coisas escritas dentro das ilustrações, de vez em quando), o Vahram não usou textos para comparar Paris e New York. Sim, é isso mesmo, você que tem preguiça de ler, quer conhecer Paris e New York, mas está na dúvida para onde ir primeiro, este livro mostra as belezas de um e do outro, comparando-os e sem te influenciar de verdade. Ele te dá o que você encontra de um lado e do outro e você quem decide qual é mais interess [...]

    18. Memories!! A great book for those who have visited or would like love to visit the title cities. Muratyan manages to say a lot by pairing his simple graphics with short, snappy phrases. It's fun seeing the City of Lights and the Big Apple lay side-by-side (or sometimes superimposed on one another). It's all clean lines and rich color. Have fun reminiscing. I did!I especially loved "le restaurant." It's soooo effing true!

    19. Since the last review where I mentioned the yearly reading challenge went over so well, I figured I should "read" another short book. I put read in quotation marks since this book consists of illustrations contrasting Paris and New York. It's sometimes amusing, but it takes 10 minutes to go through (so I went through it all in Strand bookstore). Maybe it's hypocritical to give this 2 stars while I gave DFW's speech "This is Water" 5 stars, but at least the latter was words.

    20. An authentic "Beau Livre" for travelers, art lovers, Paris and NY lovers. Although all the illustrations are great, funny and meaningful (as done by a French graphic designer) I was expecting some kind of analysis and insight about the two cities from his point of view. But I was disappointed to realize there is quite no text in this book, except for the short introduction and the image titles and excerpts. So I'm still looking for that kind of book about Paris vs other great cities.

    21. Paris Versus New York is a witty graphic design book that is perfect for anyone who loves either The City of Lights or The Big Apple. Muratyan’s artwork originally appeared on his blog, but became so popular, that he turned it into an entire book. This little guy is the perfect small coffee table book that every apartment needs. If you fall in love with these pictures like I did, check out Muratyan’s website and order some larger prints of your favorites.

    22. it doesn't happen often; I hear the library announce they will close in 15 minutes, Im rushing to the self check-out and I see this little book on the shelf. Paris vs. New York. I'm thinking someone is going to give a semi-serious look at both cities and tell stories about the differences. Not!! I'm wasn't aware of Vahram Mutatyan or his blog before I grabbed the book, but I just feel like a book shouldn't just appeal to a narrow audience, like at least for me, this book would.

    23. I think this book is absolutely wonderful! It shows the interesting comparisons between Parisian culture and New Yorker culture. I loved the content that the author uses for the pictures and I also just loved the style of the pictures themselves. Yes, this book isn't a literary book; it is mostly an artistic representation of these two wonderful cities.

    24. As a native of one city and familiar with the other, I found this interesting and food for thought. I would have like more discusssion, however. It was a collection of graphics contrasting one city against the other, which was fun but somehow felt incomplete. I enjoyed it but wished it had been built out a little more.

    25. If ever you need a break from reading, pick this up for a look through some amazing graphics and some humorous visuals chronicling the comparisons between Paris and New York. The simplicity of the images and the bright colours used provided a great aesthetic for the book. I really enjoyed this book, especially the great graphics and was a fun "read".

    26. This book is a creative visual look at two amazing cities: New York City & Paris. Each page contains graphic design-esque illustrations that compare two facets of both cities. Since I've been to both cities, it actually brought back lots of memories besides it being an entertaining "read". Wish I could speak/read better French; I'd probably get more out of it. Great nonetheless.
