I love the complexity and density of historic cities! It's fascinating to roam with your eye over the Haussman-planned streets, with their roundabouts and diagonals through the arrondissements of Paris, abstracted into a figure/ground, or block, plan. Railroad corridors and parks and gardens are painted in a lighter shade to reveal their lines. 

The map-drawing features the heart of Paris, with its streets and bridges over the river Seine and Ile de la Cite, it's picturesque parks and its rows of rails penetrating the city fabric. The map includes the Arc de Triomphe and Jardin des Plantes on the east and west, respectively. The map is bounded on the north and south just inside the Peripherique.
