"Paris Syndrome is a notebook, a visual travel guide, a journal and a scrapbook all in one. Filled with urban images showing the streets for real, you will (re)discover Paris and then on the blank pages write down your own addresses that you discover. You can  also note the names and numbers of people you meet, stick in your tickets and receipts, or even just use it as a regular notebook at home or at the office. (...)

The first book in the series is 'Paris Syndrome', which guides you through the City of Light's coolest neighbourhoods on a visual journey from Beaubourg to Belleville. Inside the 192-page book, the street names are given next to each of the 89 different photos, as well as the nearest metro station and arrondisse-ment. But that’s all the info you get. You have to explore that street and that neighbourhood for yourself. This is a book for individual-thinking explorers.

'Paris Syndrome' shows you the kind of places you’d want to go when you’ve already climbed up the Eiffel Tower, walked down the Champs-Elysées and got lost around the Louvre. If you like wandering off the beaten path and enjoy not always knowing where you'll end up next, 'Paris Syndrome' is for you. Use it to plan ahead, take notes while you're there or get inspired by Paris while you write down your shopping list at home. Whatever, make it yours." (N.A.)

Forthcoming books in the City Syndrome series:
- LOS ANGELES
- LONDON
- NEW YORK
- BERLIN
- TOKYO
- HONG KONG

Eine schöne Idee, ein künstlerisches Paris-Buch zu einem vernünftigen herauszugeben, das auch als Notebook verwendet werden kann. Neil hat für mich ein paar Exemplare signiert - OK, etwas widersinnig, da es ja als persönlicher Notebook Verwendung finden soll; also überschreiben Sie einfach seinen Namen oder fügen Ihren eigenen Namen hinzu... ;-)
Das ambitionierte, als Serie angelegte Projekt soll weitere 'Syndomes' umfassen, und zwar dieser Städte: - LOS ANGELES, LONDON, NEW YORK, BERLIN, TOKYO, HONG KONG - cih bin gespannt....
