Bonjour Parismarais Readers,

First of all, we have chosen and indicated for you the top addresses in each street on our new Marais map. This year’s map design is signed Yukié Matsushita, a great Japanese-American illustrator who has been living in Paris for 20 years. Yukie is multi-talented and has the same passion as we do for cats. We encourage all of our readers to applaud her blog:
