Paris Up, Up and Away by Hélène Druvert - Review | BookPage | BookPageParis is full of things to do - The Tower would like to see them too The Tower takes off for the day To watch the city work and play …. The Eiffel Tower is bored … so it decides to cut loose and fly over Paris! It weaves through crowds on the streets and in the department stores, falls asleep in the sun, and wakes up to the jangling bells of Notre Dame. It's not easy being an internationally beloved and stationary monument—just ask the Eiffel Tower Trading in its spot on the Champ de Mars for the city's leading landmarks, the tower embarks on a leisurely tour… Pages alternate between strikingly simple black-and-white with occasional blue illustrations and intricate, lacelike laser cuts, which transform each turn of the page. Readers of all ages will delight in Druvert's rhyming couplets and arresting style, though those laser cuts are quite delicate. Perhaps leave the page-turning to the adults? Written in rhyming couplets, the real star of the show here is the art, delicate and ornate paper cuts.
Paris Up, Up and Away
The streets of Paris are sorrounded by a starry night, that lights up the city. The illustrated book , of which I am going to talk you about, is a feast for the eyes. In a dance of blacks and whites spaces magically alternating day and night, light and darkness; perforated pages from a painstaking job frame and hide rhymes, conceal details and lead us in the most spectacular imaginary journey. Per aspera ad astra recita l'unico tatuaggio che ha sulla pelle. Vincent Van Love. Flower Color Guide. To look at the floral world with poetry.
