The fun with this one was to design toward a display of Leonard Pitt’s collection of early postcards from Paris along side his commentary and notes about the details, locations, and changes to Paris that these photos depict.

The arrows on the maps pin-point the location of the postcards at the time they were taken, and the typeface was chosen to represent that period suitably.
