    Student reading with new short hairstyle. Seventeen Magazine, 1949.

    "The shingle cut, the feather trim, the French Scissors cut or the cherub cut - no matter which you choose - a short hairstyle flatters your face…. When the American college girl first began to clip her long tresses, the general reaction was one of general horror. Many of our short hair cuts are French importations. These tend to be a bit more exaggerated than our own American originals." — The Diamondback, Univ of Maryland, September 30, 1949.

  9. La caverne aux livres.

    La caverne aux livres is a secondhand bookshop in Auvers-sur-Oise (30km to the North of Paris). The entrance of the bookshop is an ancient railway hangar, but from there you’ll quickly find yourself in an old postal train whose cars have been reconverted into giant bookshelves.
