‘Packed with evocative photographs and perceptive texts … this book is a wonderful example of publishing at its very best … an absolute joy! Highly recommended … Book of the Month’ – Hotbrandscoolplaces
Superb photographs and illuminating texts capture the beauty of France’s towns and cities as well as the atmosphere of la France profonde. This visual treat will be lapped up by anyone with a love of France, of travel and of photography.
From the café terraces of Saint-Germain-des-Prés to fields of lavender, from Christmas markets in Alsace to carefully tended vineyards, France is a country of a thousand sensations, impressions and memories.
Designed as an innovative mix of travelogue and armchair travel, this wonderful book is presented as an ideal photo album – the kind of album that everyone wishes they had the time or skill to put together.
