Carol Gillott’s “Floral Paris” map

Have you seen Carol Gillott’s illustrated maps of Paris? As an ex-New York artist living in Paris, she started drawing Paris street maps to get out of the studio. Quite a hit, these monthly maps-cum- sketch letters are sent out to subscribers world-wide via her Etsy shop. One of our favorite recent maps depicts the “floral Paris” of Georgianna Lane’s beautiful new book, Paris in Bloom. Just released this spring, the book takes readers on a flower-filled journey in the French capital. It’s a visual feast combining photography and personal recommendations (think best flower markets and a guide to spring blooms). Carol’s map illustrates Lane’s recommendations found in the index at the back of the book. Below, we’ve shared some of these addresses for fine Paris florists. Enjoy!
