Paris in the Spring: Emile Zola on Tour

Beginning Monday, April 5, 2010, Emile Zola will be going on a virtual tour of the blogosphere. Check out these participating blogs where you’ll find reviews of a number his works, as well as general information posts about this classic author.

We have two buttons for this tour. The first is taken from the painting called Paris Street: Rainy Day and painted in 1877 by Zola’s contemporary Gustave Caillebotte (see Wikipedia). The second, possibly more fitting, button is taken from an early cover of Zola’s novel Germinal (also used via Wikipedia public domain).

Tour participants should feel free to use the buttons to promote the Circuit on their blog; please download to your own computer first.
