Whoever visits France is amazed by the beauty of the landscapes: the wild seduction of the coastal views, the sweetness of the valleys, the charm of the old villages, the broad rivers that flow through every region, the rocky shores alternating with sandy beaches, the majestic and proud peaks...and so much more. And then there are the cities, starting with Paris, so rich in history and charm, that visitors come in their millions. France is a country that evokes great emotions not only in those who visit it but also in those that live there. It is not only by chance that artists and composers have so often chosen France as a subject for their works: painters, musicians, and poets have described this land with passion and emotion, creating timeless masterpieces. This volume offers an embracing glance at the whole of France from a uniquely emotional point of view. By combining beautiful images that touch the heart with moving words of great writers from Marcel Proust to Jacques Prevert, this stunning volume elegantly crosses the nation, pausing at much loved famous places but not neglecting to offer the reader many exquisite hidden views.
The book follows four threads, each making up an extensive chapter: A Date With The Sky; In the Heartklands; City Rhythms; and Following the Stream.
