Astier De Villatte Paris City Guide Book (English)
Designers of furniture and white ceramics, Ivan Pericoli and Benoît Astier de Villatte founded their company in 1996. The only ceramic makers in Paris, they work from their studio on Boulevard Masséna and export all over the world.
Following in the tradition of the great ceramic ateliers of the 18th century, Astier de Villatte creates handmade ceramics in Paris using ancestral molding and stamping techniques. Each piece has an inscription incised into the clay: the logo of an interlaced A and V, along with the initials of the artisan who made the piece.
The Astier de Villatte Paris City Guide Book in English is a unique guide to Paris, providing a glimpse into the favourite things to see and do from the perspective of two locals: the founders of Astier de Villatte. Arranged alphabetically, the recommended sights, goods and services range from treasured restaurants to the best acupuncturist. This beautiful book is typeset on a mid-20th century linotype machine with museum quality binding, gilded pages and hand rendered maps.
