Colours of Provence

In Love in FranceTraditions, Recipes, and Home Decorations from the South of France - A colour-coded tour of the southern France region celebrates the rich tapestry of its landscapes and visitor sites, sharing insider information on where to find top-recommended fabrics, antiques, and gourmet ingredients.

Artists have long been attracted to Provence for the quality of the light and for the dramatic colour; now Colours of Provence demonstrates just what Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and others found there. Divided into chapters entitled "Red," "Orange," "Yellow," "Green," "Blue," and "White, Black, & Gray," the book is a feast of photographs celebrating the vermillion walls of a small French village, the shades of green in a Provençal herb garden, the cerulean blue of lavender spindles.

In and around these luscious photos Michel Biehn weaves a net of words describing the culture and customs of Provence, with a few recipes thrown in for good measure.

The Colours of Provence is a book made for dreaming over, ideal for those who have seen Provence for themselves, and those who hope to one day.
