PVNYCThere is an interesting trend in publishing these days – blogs turning into books. There have been many blogs that ended up as books, television shows and movies, which is quite interesting to me as media goes full circle.

One such example of new school goes old school is Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities by Vahram Muratyan, a fun comparison of the two world capitals that have made the leap from digital to print.

About Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities by Vahram Muratyan: “A chic and humorous visual homage to two of the world’s most iconic cities. When Vahram Muratyan began his online travel journal, Paris versus New York, he had no idea how quickly it would become one of the most buzzed-about sites on the Internet-it garnered more than a million and a half page views in just a few months, and the attention of savvy online critics. Now Muratyan presents his unique observations in this delightful book, featuring visually striking graphics paired with witty, thought-provoking taglines that celebrate the special details of each city. Paris versus New York is a heartfelt gift to denizens of both cities and to those who dream of big-city romance.”

The book features fun graphic images comparing some iconic about each city, think of landmarks or cultural institutions, but also comparisons such as “Patisserie vs. pastrami” (below). This book is a fun item for anyone who loves – or hates – either or both cities, and anyone that appreciates cheeky observations and hip graphics.

Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities by Vahram Muratyan is available from Amazon and other fine booksellers.

The is also a wonderful companion collection of postcards: Paris versus New York Postcard Box: A Tally of Two Cities in 100 Postcards, also available from Amazon and other fine booksellers.
