Hear the Roars in the City of Light

Hear the Roars in the City of Light

A lion finds himself a lonely, unattended traveller in Paris, where he yearned for “a job, love and a future”. The Italian illustrator/author, Beatrice Alemagna, captures the world of solitary and wonders with her acclaimed book, A Lion in Paris. The collage artwork has an unspeakable charm with its mix of gouache and pencil drawings, photography and cutouts. Take a glimpse of the city of light, as the lion stroll from Montmartre to the Eiffel Tower, Metro to the Louvre! We are mesmerized by the suspension awaiting the story to unfold. Will the lion remain a stranger to Paris, or eventually find his place?
