JeanJacques Brisson - Paris Rooftops


This amazing project by Jean Jacques Brisson is all over Pinterest so some of you will have seen it before.  It's definitely high on my list of the most intriguing miniature projects I've seen and I'm sure lots of you will love it too so I thought I'd share it as not all of you use Pinterest (and therefore have many more hours in a day to do 'useful' things!). 

Click here to see the source page which has a couple of other (very different) creations of his. That page is dated Feb 2010 but I don't know when this was made. Unfortunately  Brisson's website (www.rectoversminiatures.com) seems to have disappeared from cyberspace.  The URL appears in Google cache but the links don't work.

Hi Norma! For reasons unknown, you have not been coming through my reader. This is the first time in a long while that you do. I will now have to go back and read all the posts I missed. I wondered why you were not posting. I should have googled you. Thank you for sharing this man's incredible work!

I have that exact image on a pinboard! Wish I'd had it for reference months ago when I was working on my Parisian rooftop.

Love anything Paris. I just want to move there. I can't speak French but maybe I can just use sign language, nod and shake my head a lot...
