The Innocents Abroad, Mark Twain, Obvious State Books 

APRIL BOOK:  THE INNOCENTS ABROAD
An Excerpt on Paris
By Mark Twain 

 

An excerpt from Mark Twain's irreverent and bestselling travelogue, which details his adventures in Paris. Twain at once captured, in beautiful detail, the sights and sounds of Paris, while humorously sending up the travelogue, which he viewed as stuffy and serious. It's a fun escape and a fascinating glimpse of 19th century Paris.

 

 

5x7 BAUDELAIRE ART PRINT


From his poem Le Voyage, this quotation beautifully captures the fearless spirit of the traveler. He dedicated it to Maxime Du Camp, his contemporary, and an avid travel diarist who visited absolutely everywhere. In this illustration, a fleet of hot air balloons strive upward, and a stray tether-line suggests an open road in the space between. 

 

 

 

LETITIA ELIZABETH LANDON NOTEBOOK 

"And Notre Dame's old gothic towers were bathed in roseate bloom"
- Letitia  Landon. Quote on the back.  

 

A bicycle with its basket full of flowers in front of the Notre Dame cathedral – the wheel merging with the rose window, the basket with the upper arches and the flowers with the trefoils and quatrefoils of the church facade.

Paris Postcards Obvious State


SET OF FOUR VOYAGEUR POSTCARDS 


Inspired by art deco era posters, the voyageur collection focuses on moments over monuments, giving a playful prominence to the things you do over the things you see. The Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame and Pont Neuf serve only as architectural backdrops to Paris' pedestrian pleasures.

"And Notre Dame's old gothic towers were bathed in roseate bloom" - Letitia Landon 
A bicycle with its basket full of flowers in front of the Notre Dame cathedral – the wheel merging with the rose window, the basket with the upper arches and the flowers with the trefoils and quatrefoils of the church facade.

Arc de Triomphe Illustration, Obvious State, Umbrella Art Print

"Ah! That wilt be to me this sheltering angel." - Victor Hugo

Eiffel Tower illustration, Paris, Obvious State

"Glimmering twilight things are these, visions of the end of night" - Paul Verlaine
A pair of champagne glasses on a cafe table, the bubbles intermingling with the evening stars, creating a phantom Eiffel Tower in the negative space between the two glasses. 

 Pont Neuf Illustration, Obvious State, Paris Art Postcard

"As soon as I can leave, I will go to Paris" - George Sand 
A row a cafe chairs, good for people watching – or in this case, the mascarons that line the bridge – with their cane backs complementing the rhythmic arches of the Pont Neuf.
