L'alphabet en français...


One of my favorite stores in Paris.  Merci in the Marais, has an extensive collection of colorful letters made from metal, wood, whatever suits you.  I'm always anxious to see another creative way they have used them on the big wall.

Alain, peut-être FANTASTIQUE? :) It would be fun for all of us to finish the alphabet one day n'est-ce pas? Maybe I'll try that.

There really couldn't be another word for A other than 'amour' in French oui Virginia! Love it!

Very clever, V! I wonder what the guy on the left just said that his friends are finding so funny. (I'm playing catch-up here—your shot yesterday was magnifique!)

Simply beautiful, lovely and charming, Virginia!

Happy Valentine's Day filled with 'amour'!

That V doesn't look anywhere near good enough to do you justice, Virginia. You need an oversized script V.

That is a very cool photo! I love typography.

How did I miss this place when staying in the Marais?
Another reason to return to Paris! Warm regards
