My Day-to-Day Adventures in the Most Romantic City in the World. Includes over 270 colour illustrations, photographs, and watercolours throughout an illustrated love letter to the City of Light.
JANICE MACLEOD, the illustrator and author of the New York Times best-selling book Paris Letters, was born in Canada and worked in advertising for many years until she decided to slip away from corporate drudgery and spend time abroad. During her time in Paris, she painted letters about her travels and mailed them to friends, who encouraged her to sell the personalized illustrated letters on Etsy. Since then, MacLeod has sent out thousands of letters to fans worldwide.

does)."--Cheryl Yanek, Library Journal
