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 Cote 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.
