Our sample article is “Le Locle on the Seine: Artisanal and Entrepreneurial Traditions in Henri Jacot’s Parisian Atelier,” by Larry L. Fabian. The author uses the metaphor of a Le Locle on the Seine to invite the reader to imagine a “virtual” community among the carriage clockmakers in the Marais. The article bookends itself with the painting, Clock Maker, by David Chalfant, 1899.
