The pocket-sized Bonjour map-guides made of water resistant, tear-proof paper feature rare and soulful places that exude an enviable je ne sais quoi. From bakeries to taco trucks, bicycle rentals to antiques shops, or boutiques to toy stores, each recommendation includes a succinct anecdote, tip, or description illustrated by Marin Montaguts watercolor travel sketches to tempt bon vivants everywhere. In Bonjour London, taste the city's best fish and chips in a go-go atmosphere, sample the Queens perfume at the Royal Courts official supplier (since 1790), have a clandestine high tea in a Roaring Twenties ambience, or sample cocktails in a Hoxton jazz club. Featured districts include Shoreditch, Hackney, Notting Hill, Soho, Brixton. These unique and charming guides from Parisian tastemaker Marin Montagut offer a genuine and refined tour of the world capitals.
