Dany Laferrière, self-portrait Paris with cat

The French Academy member, Dany Laferrière, promoting his new novel self-portrait of Paris with cat. The author presents it entirely hand-drawn. A self-portrait of the city of light with a cat. For Dany, "Paris is a city in constant motion, to represent this movement properly, we have to understand the concept of stillness. Paris is also influenced by the people who visit or settle there. Self-portrait of Paris with Cat is not only about the French capital, but also about all those who come there with a dream. "Dany explained that "Drawing is another way of writing". The hand-made book is intended to be a tribute to this form of communication which is increasingly being abandoned for electronic bidolas.
