A Map of the World is a compelling collection of work by a new generation of original and sought-after designers, illustrators, and mapmakers. This work showcases specific regions, characterizes local scenes, generates moods, and tells stories beyond sheer navigation. From accurate and surprisingly detailed representations to personal, naïve, and modernistic interpretations, the featured projects from around the world range from maps and atlases inspired by classic forms to cartographic experiments and editorial illustrations.

Galerie Doux Dimanche is owned by Edition Paumes. Each product is beautifully presented in the shop. You can find designer pieces from Nathalie Lété, Tsé-Tsé, La Cocotte, Famille Summerbelle :-) and of course the huge collection of their wonderful books!
I've had something of a love affair with Japan ever since we visited back in 2008, so it feels extra special to be able to share this with you.
We have just launched this collaboration with Issey Miyake for their Pleats Please range.
It's based on my World Map design and it includes a wonderful collection of clothing and accessories. The map has been adapted specifically for Pleats Please, placing Japan absolutely at the heart of the map.
The book is a peak inside our home and family life. It includes tips and inspiration for handmade ideas and inspiring home decor. It, of course, includes plenty of paper cutting and fun activities to do with your children.
We've been huge fans of édition Paumes for quite sometime, amassing a rather large collection of their wonderful books on European interior style, family homes and culture.
They came to live with us over a couple of weeks and we had a ball creating all number of decorative ideas. They have a wonderful style and interest in the smallest of details which we hope comes across well in the book.
The book is available for pre-sale NOW on our site. Just click here.
The book is mostly written in Japanese but all of the titles are in English and there is plenty of translation throughout. To be honest all of édition Paumes' books are incredibly visual, so you can rely on the images to give you all the detail that you need!
A huge thank you to the Dutch magazine Ariadne at Home Kinderen for featuring our Paris map in their latest issue. When they contacted me before the Summer, they asked me if they could enlarged the Paris map into a wall sticker for the photo shoot. I really love the result!
The beautiful Papier Maché online mag has released a new issue. As always it's a pleasure to read and look at. I wanted to say a big MERCI to Emma Cassi for including our new coral pink Paris map in her photoshoot 'I fell asleep amongst the flowers.. for a couple of hours...' (love the title). This little blond curly hair girl is so cute!
A very big THANK YOU/MERCI to Edition Paumes for asking us to be part of their new book Paris Family Style. I have previously mentioned their Children's room London, Stockholm and Paris on the blog. It is a real pleasure discover the homes of creative Parisian families (Petit Pan, Olivesle, The Collection, April Showers just to mention a few)

My favorite online magazine Papier Maché has just released a Déco supplement of Children's rooms and it has been illustrated by the talented Laura Callaghan.

We've been very spoiled by the UK mag Easy Living over the past 2 months. We've been featured twice which is very exciting.
I'm mentioning on the article the accessories that we use on a daily basis (the Imac for designing, the Babycook steamer when Ophelia was little, the radio...) or when we were traveling: the kids headphones for Ophelia, the Iphone to check our email and work while away, the Canon camera to take pictures of the products or for the blog...
