According to Fodor’s Parisian’s have a name for someone who wanders around strolling the city streets with no real destination in mind, Le Flâneur. Now truth be told, I almost always had a destination in mind when I wandered through Paris’ streets, I still spent most of my time mindlessly searching for children’s bookstores and to see as many Monet’s as I could find. But I am truly a hippie at heart I am sure and so I think this name fits best!
Which do you like better???
Also there are two layouts? My original idea when I started is to make it 4.5 x 6 and each painting is its original size one on a page like the layout in When you go to Parisbut that book is an irregular size limiting its ability to be sold in bookstores etc through create space. It actually doesn’t cost that much more to produce but a bit.
The second layout is a standard create space template and I guess I like it ok. More then I thought I would! Le Flaneur: A Modern Day Hippie’s Guidebook to Wandering Around Paris
Both books will have more text and actual lessons in the back that I learned but I just had to see what they look like… I have 94 paintings sketched out 4 to go to meet Monte Dolack’s challenge… but a couple I might redo or remove altogether and there are quite a few I want to paint I haven’t started. I actually took 1500 photos in Paris so I could probably be painting it for the rest of my life!!
Samples coming soon!
I can’t wait to get the samples from create space hopefully I can order them today!

Well, I’d love your thoughts! Provided I don’t add to many more pages I think both books would sell between $14.95 and $16.95…
