Using Eiffel Tower clipart can evoke immediate identification with both France as a whole, and Paris. For French teachers and several other professionals, Parisian images can enhance instruction and brighten up reports and presentations. For travelers, clipart can add a special touch to a photo album or scrapbook.
You may be able to find an image of the Eiffel Tower, a French hat, or a baguette with a glass of wine in standard clipart collections that are delivered as part of some word processing software. In addition, purchasing specialized collections of clipart to augment the free collection delivered with software often provides several additional French-themed images, such as the Eiffel Tower. It is often the case that purchased clipart is more refined in its look than the free collection.
