On May 30th, Welbeck Publishing is due to publish the latest art book by Cierra Block, PARIS, BLOCK BY BLOCK! Written and illustrated by Block, here’s the synopsis…
Paris is seen the world over as one of the most beautiful, romantic and iconic cities you can visit, and it has more places to eat and things to see than you could manage in a lifetime. Paris, Block by Block is the essential guide to the unmissable places to go, covering everything from restaurants to boutiques, galleries to parks, all illustrated with 50 of Cierra Block’s distinctive maps. Each map starts with an idea – it might be, Where’s the best croissant in Paris? What is the place everyone should visit in the Latin Quarter? Or, where can you lose hours people-watching? From there, Cierra has curated a list of the best places from Montmartre to The Marais, Champs Élysées to St-Germain, and has painted a charming accompanying map. Patisserie to fashion, the most impressive views to Seine-side activities, there really is something for everyone.
The follow-up to 2022’s London Block by Block and 2023’s New York Block by Block, this book will be an inspiration for all, whether it’s your first visit to the city, a seasoned traveller or an all-your-life local. That’s the wonderful thing about Paris – there’s always more to explore!
As mentioned in the synopsis, above, Cierra Block has also created two other books: LONDON BLOCK BY BLOCK and NEW YORK BLOCK BY BLOCK — they are both out now, also published by Welbeck Publishing!
