Artist and world-traveler Erik Gauger’s series of Paris sketches stopped me in my tracks. Drawn with black pen and filled in with either watercolor and markers, Gauger has perfectly captured both the exquisite details of the city, and my heart (that little green Citroën!). The sketches are undeniably charmant but the highlight for me was getting the chance to see his moleskine notebooks from the trip. I can’t imagine anything more personal than an artists’ sketchbook, so that he included them is such a treat. Even his rough notes are gorgeous; look at the detail on Sacre-Cœur!
