I have been so excited to get my hands on this book since I first started hearing/reading about it a few months ago. Yesterday was the release date and happy to report we have a lovely stack of them at the shops. France: Inspiration du Jour by the ever talented Rae Dunn. The tag line is ‘An Artist’s Sketchbook’ which it really looks & feels like, which I quite love. It is what makes this book so special. I have long been a fan of Rae and her work in clay, carrying her original work at the Fine Home shop when we first opened and later her produced works for the last many, many years. Inspired by her time in France, this book is filled with her drawings, notes, thoughts, photos. From her foreword: “I feel particularly connected to France because I share the sensibilities, aesthetics, and quality of life of the French.” I could not agree with her more, feeling very much the same way. For those of you who share in this, her new book will be a happy respite whenever you need a little sojourn without the jet lag.
