    This was a really fast read so fast that I read almost the entire thing on my half hour train commute this morning, and was forced to stop at a bookstore after work so I d have something to read on the trip home Even for a graphic novel, this book was pretty light on the text But the story, about an art student and a debutante who find love in 1950s Paris, was pretty delightful, and the illustrations were really interesting It definitely did not have the emotional impact of a lot of other gr This was a really fast read so fast that I read almost the entire thing on my half hour train commute this morning, and was forced to stop at a bookstore after work so I d have something to read on the trip home Even for a graphic novel, this book was pretty light on the text But the story, about an art student and a debutante who find love in 1950s Paris, was pretty delightful, and the illustrations were really interesting It definitely did not have the emotional impact of a lot of other graphic novels, but it was cute and entertaining

    Since I m a big fan of Andi Watson s work, it was inevitable that his most recent collection Paris would land on my list of best books of 2007 I didn t get a chance to review it properly until now, but it should come as no surprise that Watson once again does not disappoint, with an incredibly charming and atmospheric book featuring some of the most fantastically detailed black and white art I ve seen in ages If you are at all familiar with the recent works of Andi Watson, like the opposites Since I m a big fan of Andi Watson s work, it was inevitable that his most recent collection Paris would land on my list of best books of 2007 I didn t get a chance to review it properly until now, but it should come as no surprise that Watson once again does not disappoint, with an incredibly charming and atmospheric book featuring some of the most fantastically detailed black and white art I ve seen in ages If you are at all familiar with the recent works of Andi Watson, like the opposites attract romance of 2002 s Slow News Day or the marriage on tough times in 2001 s Breakfast After Noon, then the subject matter and tone of Paris should similarly come as no surprise Like many of Watson s other works, Paris is essentially a love story, this one focusing on Juliet, an American art student studying in the city of lights who is forced to paint portraits of spoiled little rich girls in order to pay her tuition She is given yet another portraiture assignment, one she is not looking forward to until she meets her subject Deborah, a young British woman with a domineering aunt Juliet and Deborah quickly bond, and as Juliet continues to work on the painting, her infatuation with Deborah grows Watson quickly demonstrates in Paris that, although he is spinning yet another tale of romance, he is able to make it unique by adding new twists to the formula Here, Watson is dealing with a same sex relationship, but he does not do so in such a way as to call attention to it as an issue He handles this subject matter with such a deft hand that Paris is, in the end, just like any other love story it simply happens to feature two women His handling of the class differences between Juliet and Deborah is equally subtle At the beginning of the book, a story sequence which did not appear when the book was first published in comic form helps to establish the characters of Juliet and Deborah, each living in their separate worlds of poverty and privilege respectively, with very few words What really sets the story apart, however, is the incredibly striking art of Simon Gane That Gane drew the book comes as a bit of a surprise since it s unusual for Watson to write a story and not draw it as well, but after you read the book, it s hard to imagine it without Gane s influence His visuals of the city of Paris are idealized and romantic, setting the mood of the story perfectly Each image, many of which come in the form of perfectly rendered full page splashes, transports you to this picturesque setting and makes you feel like love is quite literally in the air Also, because Juliet is an art student, throughout the story we see paintings by artists of bygone eras, each one painstakingly recreated by Gane in exquisite detail Gane is currently the artist for the new Vertigo series Vinyl Underground, which he draws in a style that is slightlyrealistic than his art in Paris, but still just as beautiful Watson meanwhile has again returned to drawing his own stories, producing an issue of the incredibly sweet children s series Glister for Image every few months This information should prove useful to you in the near future, because Paris is the kind of book that is so well crafted you will not only love it, but you will instantly become a lifelong fan of everyone involved in its creation

    Maybe a 3.5 of 5 This review, with pictures, and others posted over at my blog From the back of the book Juliet is a penniless American art student in early 1950s Paris, painting portraits of socialites and sharing a flat with a revolutionary bohemian to make ends meet She s not expecting romance, but this is Paris after all, where both inspiration and love abound When she s commissioned to paint Deborah s portrait, Juliet thinks the young British woman is just another rich girl But Juli Maybe a 3.5 of 5 This review, with pictures, and others posted over at my blog From the back of the book Juliet is a penniless American art student in early 1950s Paris, painting portraits of socialites and sharing a flat with a revolutionary bohemian to make ends meet She s not expecting romance, but this is Paris after all, where both inspiration and love abound When she s commissioned to paint Deborah s portrait, Juliet thinks the young British woman is just another rich girl But Juliet and Deborah s love for art bring them together, even as their friends and family try to drive them apart. The cover art pulled me in initially and I figured the story would be cute it was In less than 150 pages, and fairly minimal text, Paris covers the struggle of doing what you love versus what s expected of you, discovering your sexual identity, and juggling love and friendship If I m going to be critical, I d say the plot was a little underdeveloped and the relationship between Juliet and Deborah seems to just appear But overall it s a nice read and I love Gane s art style The line work appears simplistic but many of the scenes are fairly complex and have a lot of little details that are easy to miss On panels that took an entire page I found myself scanning them, Where s Waldo style, looking at all the details so as not to miss anything I wasn t blown away by the story or the art, but I did enjoy it

    A pleasing, if unsurprising, love story about two women in 1950s Paris Deborah, a British girl from the upper class, and Juliet, the American art student commissioned to paint her Simon Gane s blocky art takes a bit to get used to, but is oddly perfect for the the European surroundings unfortunately, this means the later scenes in rural America aren t as differentiated as one might wish This short story is probably the right length for what it is, yet we never feel for the main characters qu A pleasing, if unsurprising, love story about two women in 1950s Paris Deborah, a British girl from the upper class, and Juliet, the American art student commissioned to paint her Simon Gane s blocky art takes a bit to get used to, but is oddly perfect for the the European surroundings unfortunately, this means the later scenes in rural America aren t as differentiated as one might wish This short story is probably the right length for what it is, yet we never feel for the main characters quite nearly enough to give the forced separation any real weight Still, enjoyable enough for a quick evening s read if not approaching greatness, at least still pretty good

    I didn t find this book to be very thrilling or new It kind of rehashed the themes of love and longing, in a way that didn t seem very passionate at all The characters were a bit stereotypical and weren t developed enough for me to have feelings for them.The theme of homosexuality is brave and praiseworthy, but the characters and plot were just so 2 D that I really couldn t embrace anything about this book.

    Full disclosure, Andi and I are pals and I have a blurb on the back of this book I think that blurb speaks for itself, so here it is When reading Paris, one s head swims as if we ourselves were Andi Watson s love drunk heroine His scripts make our knees weak, but Simon Gane s art catches us as we crumble, completing the seduction with casual grace.

    I won t give star ratings to books that I worked on as an editor, but I will review them Paris is a beautiful book about love and art and learning how to use one s passion Andi Watson s story makes what some would see as an unconventional romance seem like the most natural thing in the world, and Simon Gane s art is simply to die for.
