While visiting Paris last month, I stopped at Merci, a destination for design and fashion lovers alike. Located in the Marais, the store donates 100% of its proceeds, and the Fiat 500 - parked out front - calls out to have its photo taken.
Inside the store, the thing that caught my eye was a series of posters from The Parisianer.
Sipping wine in a Parisian cafe during the winter of 2013, artists Aurélie Pollet and Michael Prigent questioned what The New Yorker would look like if set in Paris. With that, the imaginary magazine The Parisianer was created, and 100 artists were invited to create a cover illustrating their vision of Paris.
The first exhibition for The Parisianer took place in December 2013, and was even written up in The New Yorker. The compilation book of the covers has sold out, but posters of the covers became available this summer through Merci.
