Read in January, 2010

This is totally up my alley. Lucy is 3 years younger than I and looks to be heavily influenced by Craig Thompson's awesome Carnet de Voyage. This is Knisley's sketchbook/journal from a month in Paris with her mother in January of 2007. Her illustration style is very accessible and reminiscent of Thompson. I enjoyed this window into her life. Unfortunately, I felt like she didn't go as deep as Thompson. All they did was go to museums, eat, and shop. She angsts about money, but eats foie gras every day. Her lifestyle is very different from mine. And so I became a bit disenchanted with this. It's a nice addition to my graphic novel travelogue list, but that's it.
