Description - A Paris Year by Janice MacLeod

There are many guide books to Paris, but the gorgeously illustrated A PARIS YEAR is a guide book not just for those walking the streets of the City of Light but for the armchair traveller, the dreamer, the person who has been to Paris and wants to reminisce.

When Janice MacLeod arrived in Paris, she brought her talents for writing, illustration and photography with her. She also met Christophe, who became her reason to stay in Paris.

In A PARIS YEAR, Janice charts the moods, changes and charms of Paris through her words, paintings and photos. The book is set over the course of a calendar year and it covers food, buildings, historical figures, places of interest and local characters. There is Hemingway, Robespierre, the author's local boulangerie, flea markets, what Paris is like when the locals come home after la rentree, and a handy cheat sheet to help you distinguish Napoleon B from Napoleon III; there is macaron day and Le Bon Marche. In short: all the details of Paris that make the city unique and captivating.

Buy A Paris Year by Janice MacLeod from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.

Author Biography - Janice MacLeod

After years of writing junk mail in advertising, Canadian Janice MacLeod devised an exit strategy to finance her own sabbatical. She then skipped town and travelled with nothing more than her suitcase and a small set of watercolours. Along the way, she painted letters about her travels and mailed them to friends. Enamoured with this unique medium, she opened an online shop and ended up sending monthly letters to hundreds of subscribers who were hungry for fun mail. While in Paris, she met the lovely Christophe, who built her a closet so she would finally unpack her suitcase. She's been an embarrassment to the French language ever since. They got hitched and hit the road. Now they're hanging their hats in the Rocky Mountains. Janice wrote the New York Times bestselling book PARIS LETTERS (2014), and co-wrote two other books. Janice has been featured in magazines such as Elle, National Geographic, Canadian Living, Canadian Family, Cosmopolitan, Chatelaine, Glamour, Flare, Psychologies, Huffington Post, The New York Times, Psychologies, Renegade Collective, Business Insider, and and and... the list continues.
