Incredible Hand-Drawn Map Of Paris

Should your basic grasp of GSCE level French fail to stretch beyond telling people where you live and asking for ham, we’d advise not asking directions during a trip to Paris. You’ll want a good map instead.
 
This said, we’d leave this one at home – specifically framed beautifully on your living room wall for all to see, as this isn't just any ordinary map of the French capital. This is the latest hand-drawn wonder from artist and globetrotter Jenni Sparks.
 
Having already drawn city maps for London, New York and Berlin, her weary hand was barely rested before laying down ink for this thoroughly researched and vividly striking artwork which brings a metropolis to life on fine matt paper.
 
Aimed very much with the discerning visitor in mind, Sparks has once again attempted to go where the locals go, from the major cultural and fashion points to the lesser-known quirkier finds, capturing enough detail to ensure you know the real Paris away from tourist guidebook cliché.
 
You can order one now for £100 at Evermade.com. Berets sold seperately.
