Paris in Spring 2012

  • Carol-Lynne Moore and Kaoru Yamamoto: Beyond Words – Movement observation and Analysis
  • Jo Butterworth: Dance Studies – the basics
  • Tristan Garcia: L’image
  • Jean-Philippe Toussaint: L’urgence et la patience
  • Tim Burton: Catalogue de l’exposition (bought before the exposition opens on the 7th of March!)
  • HEY! Modern Art & Pop Culture – Artshow – Musee de la Halle St Pierre
  • Francois Xavier Delman, Mathias Minet, Christine Barbaste: Le Guide de Degustation de l’Amateur de The
  • Mariage Freres: Eloge de la cuisine au The – livre de recettes

Me and TinTin on our way home.
