A wondrous sketchbook from a year spent in the south of France--an artist's personal journal carried everywhere and crammed with drawings and notions and thoughts surprising and whimsical.

Delicate watercolors shine like jewels set into each page of this exquisite book. In tones of sea and morning sky, stucco and brick, olive leaf and apricot, rose and geranium, sara Midda captures the land, the people, the shimmering air--the whole feeling of Provence and the C#65533;te d'azur, and the spell they cast over even those who haven't visited. Interspersed throughout are photographic collages and charming observations. The whole book is printed on uncoated stock to convey the feeling of an artist's sketchbook.

Cute little book of water colours and sketches based on the author's surroundings/memoirs in Provenance and the south of France in general. The author divides the book into sections based on months, sketching foods, places, architecture, plant life, and other ephemera. Each month has its own page where the author notes important dates in French history for the month, and includes little blurbs about seasonal characteristics of the region.
