Perhaps a gift for you or a belated holiday gift for that someone you know who loves the two top fashion capitols in the world, Vahram Muratyan’s book Paris Versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities is full of side by side illustrated comparisons of New York City and Paris. Having had the chance to flip through this book while in Paris in Shakespeare & Co. bookstore this summer, I couldn’t help but smile and nod in agreement with the distinct culture depictions of each metropolis (view a few samples below).

PARIS VERSUS NEW YORK: A TALLY OF TWO CITIES by Vahram Muratyan, a gorgeous and witty homage to two of the world’s most iconic cities, was an instant must-have for culture vultures, graphic artists, Francophiles, style mavens, design hounds, jet-setters, and New Yorkers upon its publication earlier this year. The book was inspired by Vahram Muratyan’s blog Paris versus New York, A Tally of Two Cities which featured charming and colorful prints comparing the two metropolises and cultivated a devoted international following. His prints were on display at the popular Paris shop Collette (a favorite of the fashionable crowd) throughout the month of September 2011, a display which T Magazine described as “the pitting of macarons against cupcakes and the dueling hairdos of Sonia Rykiel and Anna Wintour,” and later at The Shop at the Standard in February 2012.

When Penguin Books extended the opportunity to offer a lucky Simply Luxurious Life reader a copy of a deluxe edition which contains an additional 35 illustrations not included in the original, I couldn’t wait to share the giveaway with you.

  6. Hi! Would truly enjoy Paris Versus New York! Have traveled to New York twice and look forward to the time I will visit Paris!! Fashion is an obsession of mine and I’m always open to new ways to express myself via fashion. As a 58 year old wife, mom, grandma, professional, and a cowgirl, there are many fashions that appeal to me and I try to blend together to “express myself”. All about playing “dress up”. Your gift of literature would be greatly appreciated 🙂

  7. Oh, I would love to receive a copy of this fun book. We’re moving into a new house next month, and I’ve already been dreaming about where I’ll display my collection of travel books. This would fit in just nicely!

  8. I love this book! I think my kids would really enjoy the images of their hometown, especially the hotdog. jdaubel @

  9. Enjoy your classy style and upbeat postings. The beige dress
    with the horizontal blue stripes totally took me by surprise
    and in a great way..had never, ever contemplated that color combo
    but now thinking turquoise pashima shawl with camel overcoat!
    Thanks for the inspiration and would love to win that book!
