This handsome cafe just steps from the Opéra Garnier was once a haunt of writers Émile Zola, Guy de Maupassant, and others. The shellfish platters are solid, and the setting is as close to a time machine as it gets. (Cafe de la Paix, 5 Place de l'Opéra, 75009.)
Signed fine art Giclee prints on museum-quality, one-quarter-cotton 280 gsm paper with archival inks are available in two sizes:
5 x 7 for $55
9 x 12 for $95
Editions are strictly limited to 365 copies, and each annotated print is a beautiful reminder that our days are numbered.
A Note about Holiday Deliveries: My printer has closed for the year to give his staff a chance to enjoy the festivities, but if you still want to give a print as a present, I can take care of you.
You can order here up to midnight 12/24 (or even on 12/25) and still have a great gift.
As soon as you place your order you will receive an instant link to download a custom gift sheet with the image and a bit of text about the series. (See here for a sample.)
The custom gift sheet is perfect for printing at home, rolling up, and presenting on the big day. The actual signed print will arrive in January. I promise. Happy New Year!
