Sweet typography here.
It is a pictorial representation of various neighbourhoods in Paris using typography. Bastille, for example, is a barricade that masks in using gas smoke. It struck a cord since motion graphics was one of my first loves, although it wasn’t called that at the time, it was just movie intros that I loved so much (Saul Bass rocks). I grew up on the various James Bond intros, most notably For Your Eyes Only (I saw that four times in the theaters).
