The Parisianer

A Parisianer Proof:
if New York has The New Yorker,
and Paris is as beautiful as New York,
then Paris deserves The Parisianer.
The Parisianer is a love letter to Paris that showcases the covers–designed by 128 gifted artists–of an imaginary magazine. Their witty, graceful and humorous illustrations convey the complex charm of the City of Lights: from dreamy outdoor cafes, to street protests, to getting lost along Grands Boulevards, to the Jardin du Luxembourg, to dancing all night long in the many boîtes de nuit.

The Parisianer, collectif,  10/18

François-Xavier Schmit
When he was a child, François-Xavier always kept a book in the pocket of his jeans. However, for the first decade of his working life, he put his love of books aside to embark on a successful career in human resources. At age 34, deciding that life was too short not enjoy every moment of it, François-Xavier quit his position, moved to Toulouse, and opened his own bookstore. Six years later, while L'Autre Rive was thriving in the Pink city, François-Xavier heard that the French Embassy was looking for someone to run a future bookshop, and he moved to New York in August of 2013. The fine selection of books on display at Albertine is a reflection of his hard work.
