After spending a fair amount of time in the culture capital of NYC, Parisian graphic designer Vahram Muratyan returned home and created Paris versus New York, a series of charming illustrations comparing the respective nuances of the two bustling—and beloved—metropolises.
Muratyan takes on everything from lifestyle habits, such the Parisian's love for cigarette breaks versus the New Yorker's affinity for keeping on the go.
Vahram is a freelance art director and graphic designer based in Paris, where his clients include Chanel, the Opéra de Paris, and Le Monde. He lives in Paris and, soon, New York City, too.
Published by Penguin. The book features 110 of his illustrations, 60 of which have never been published before.
