Francisca has created a unique representation of Paris using exquisite etchings of Parisian sites and buildings dating from 1828 to 1830. Based on the locations and themes found in the etchings, Francisca has positioned the folded pages in a way that creates entirely new narratives. The gilding on some of the edges adds to the intriguing character of this piece.
