About This Book

A brilliant souvenir of the City of Light for people of all ages, back in print for the first time in 40 years.

In the early 1960s, Robinson, an illustrator celebrated for his drawings of buildings, documented Paris in his signature style. More than 40 years after its original publication, Paris, Line by Line returns to print. Page after page is filled with Robinson's beautiful, precise drawings: be it an aerial view of the Right Bank, the hustle and bustle of the Champs-Élysées, or a show at the Moulin Rouge, Robinson's meticulous re-creations perfectly capture what makes Paris such a beloved destination. From a Latin Quarter restaurant to the quays of the Seine; from a parade through the Arc de Triomphe to arrivals at the Gare du Nord; from strollers in the Tuileries to the crowds in the Place Pigalle, Parisians and tourists alike will savor this panoramic souvenir that uniquely celebrates the elegance, excitement, and spirit of the City of Light.

About the Author

Born in Berlin as Werner Kruse, Robinson adopted his one-name moniker after Robinson Crusoe awoke in him his passion to draw. He drew more than 250,000 illustrations during his lifetime and is the author of the bestselling New York, Line by Line, as well as Paris, Line by Line. Robinson died in 1994 at the age of 83. Today, with the existence of such graphics programs as Freehand and Illustrator, Robinson is considered a pioneer, his technique an example and inspiration for many illustrators.
