kiki and coco's guide to paris + giveaway

If you happen to be traveling to Paris sometime soon, or even in the far future, be sure to find yourself a copy of Kiki and Coco's Guide to Paris when it publishes later this month on June 27.  Kiki and Coco teach you French words, help you pack for your trip, provide tidbits about French culture and remind you to take note of the beautiful details, monuments and magical experiences you have in the City of Lights.  Included are activities, four postcards (with scenes from Kiki and Coco's original storybook) and a pocket in the back to hold any Parisian treasures you pick up along the way.  A wonderful way to become acquainted with Paris and its many charms, and the perfect keepsake to record your amazing time there.

Kiki & Coco’s Guide to Paris was written by Nina Gruener, photographed by Stephanie Rausser and the beautiful doll in the book was made by Jess Brown.

Cameron Books is giving away one set of Kiki and Coco in Paris AND Kiki & Coco’s Guide to Paris.  This giveaway is open to US and Canada residents and the winners will be drawn at random.  It ends on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 11:59 PM PDT.  Head over to Instagram to enter. 


impressions of paris

We love seeing a city through an artist’s eyes, and in this case, Cat Seto’s.  Her new Impressions of Paris: An Artist’s Sketchbook contains a mélange of illustrations, notes and vignettes that uncover the many facets of this glorious city—from the quotidian to the ornate, the celebrated landmarks to the small, charming details tucked away in its tiny corners and crevices.

Cat shows us her art that has been inspired by the City of Lights, centering around four main principles—color, pattern, perspective and rhythm—and how this tremendous city continues to engage artists and creatives who draw on its beauty, history and joie de vivre to inspire their own work.  Will we take this incredibly lovely guide with us to Paris one day?  Mais oui!

Impressions of Paris: An Artist’s Sketchbook was written and illustrated by Cat Seto and published by Harper Design.  Click here for a charming preview of the book.  You can see where her impressions of Paris and life in San Francisco connect at @paristosf.
