Edinburgh illustrated by Chomet

have you seen The IllusionistNo, not that confusing magician movie with Edward Norton, but the adorably beautiful animated British-French film from The Triplets of Belleville creator Sylvain Chomet.

It is beautiful and very sweet...and it's set in the wonderful city of Edinburgh! I've been missing it lately...especially after skyping with a dear friend last weekend who still lives there...rainy, but beeeeyoootiful.

Chomet's animation totally captures the magic of this city. The story is a little sparse, but it is so beautiful, I highly recommend it. I am trying to find a good source to purchase a large still print from the film...I would love to frame it.
