A Paris Journal
Jean-Philippe Delhomme, famed Paris-based illustrator, painter and cultural writer, knows his way around a paintbrush and has been jazzing up the likes of GQ, Wallpaper and W magazine with characterful depictions of faces, charming figures and lively street scenes for some time now. In 2015, he was asked by German newspaper Die Zeit to contribute a weekly column on Paris for their Sunday magazine. The project has now become Delhomme’s newest book, A Paris Journal. This slender publication features over 60 color plates chronicling Delhomme’s sensitive and humorous drawings of everyday life in Paris. From the celebrated swans in the Seine to the absurdities of the fashion-obsessed, the lighthearted illustrations offer salve to the two terrorist attacks that defined Paris in 2015. Delhomme has published several volumes of illustrated work, written a children’s book, Visit to Another Planet, plus two illustrated novels, and produces animated television commercials. August Editions’ past publication was Delhomme’s The Unknown Hipster (2013).
