So much fun! One of my favorite pages of Robinson’s work is his rendition of the northern end of the Champs-Elysees, building by building. The detail is marvelous, and endearing. From the shape of cars, to figures walking, shop fronts, apartments, and even the Poste Parisien, he captures the subtle rhythm of the building flow.

The little 3×5 pop up book takes portions of the Champs and divides them as tiny vignettes of a magnificent city. Ah! To be there now…
