“The Little(r) Museums of Paris” by Emma Jacobs

Did you see our popular illustrated series called “Parisians in Profile”? Journalist Emma Jacobs interviewed Parisians from all walks of life, telling their stories through colorful illustrations. Now fans will be thrilled to know that she’s published a beautiful illustrated book called The Little(r) Museums of Paris. Out now in North America and Europe!

Part-travelogue, part-guidebook, the book covers atmospheric house museums, scientific collections, and even a former wine warehouse now full of antique carousels. It includes stories and highlights of more than fifty collections and conversations with curators, living museums founders and artists. You’ll meet heroes of the French resistance, the devoted Edith Piaf fan who turned two rooms of his tiny Paris apartment into a museum, a designer who reconstructs period rooms from paintings and photographs, museum curators and artists.
