Oh la la, I think I have been obsessed with Paris ever since I was a petite fille, in fact I always dreamt of moving there one day…I have been to Paris many many times, I still love it and I always will but lately, its NY who’s really calling my name. So I thought it would be fun to share with you some illustrations I found on Paris vs NYC by Vahram Muratyan…How awesome and spot on are they?

Her new album, due out next year, features Johnny Depp, of all people, on guitar. “Johnny’s a great musician,” says Smith, who in person is precise and watchful. “Patti Smith: Camera Solo” opens at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT, and is on view through February 19, 2012; thewadsworth.org

Along with Susan Hochbaum, we are thrilled to report that “PastryParis” (the little movie we enjoyed) is now a book! PastryParis is a collection of nearly 100 of the world’s most beautiful settings. The pairings – often humorous and always arresting – offer a visual tour of this most sumptuous of cities, where desserts are taken as seriously as music, sculpture and painting. Available for pre-order through online booksellers and will be in bookstores on October 11.
