Pastry Paris, Cute!

Last year an online film/slide-show was released by graphic designer Susan Hochbaum, in which she compared French pastries to compatible Parisian landmarks and elements of the romantic city, in terms of colour and form; the Palais Garnier as mille-feuille for example!
Such was its popularity, that images from the short-film have now been made into a coffee-table look-good entitled "Pastry Paris", which is a cute and clever collection of "The fine arts, which are five in number, namely: painting, sculpture, poetry, music, and architecture, the principal branch of the latter being pastry", as Hochbaum says.
Published by The Little Bookroom, it's available to buy HERE, and I couldn't agree with her more when she says, “It’s hard not to love a city with a patisserie on nearly every block, where pastries are sold all day long to people who never get fat”. You can blame Gauloises for that!
