We started 2013 by organizing a selection of our daughter’s French books on this expandable, recycled aluminum rack that we picked up at merci in Paris. Makes for a useful addition to a compact New York apartment. You can find a similar model sold as a desk-organizing tool at Design Within Reach.
Here it is, the 1965 Renault 1500, as seen on the cover of l’action magazine (love the mag’s subtitle: “Automobile et Touristique”). We picked up this old issue at a magazine re-seller in the Marais; I couldn’t resist the cover image of the plaid-covered gal driving the sleek car, which looks like a lot of Swedish car design from the era, albeit with a dash of French flair.
