Best Bet: Paris Versus New York, the Book


After his prints contrasting two famous fashion cities gained notoriety in the blogosphere, graphic designer Vahram Muratyan released a 224-page book of his split-screen-style illustrations last week, Paris Versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities. The book showcases his colorful, modern designs comparing the food, fashion, and architecture beloved in each city: Metro vs. Subway, bobo vs. hipster, baguette vs. bagel, Eiffel Tower vs. Statue of Liberty, Sonia vs. Anna, and more. Browse the prints for a pre-Fashion Week pick-me-up.
