INTRODUCING OUR FRENCH COUNTRY DIARY FOR 2014 Vive la Belle Tradition!

F R E N C H C O U N T R Y D I A R Y 2014
Weekly Engagement Calendar


The elegant slipcase of the French Country Diary's 26th edition features a vibrant French blue and white Provençal fabric pattern from the venerable Olivades textiles company in Saint-Etienne-du Grès, embellished by an intricate blue and yellow border fabric . Within the slipcase lies a linen-textured hardcover book with a romantic red floral design that displays the year ‘2014’ in a decorative medallion. Vintage typography and fifty-eight evocative new photographs by renowned Paris photographer Guillaume de Laubier enhance the captivating design of this unique engagement calendar.


Each of the week-at-a-glance spreads offers a vignette of the French countryside, including gardens, private homes, villages and inspiring landscapes. In this year's Diary we visit the posh resort of Biarritz, poised on the shores of the Atlantic in the Pays Basque; stroll through the romantic gardens of Eugénie-les-Bains in the Landes region; explore the palm-decked harbor town of Villefranche-sur-Mer on the Mediterranean, with its pastel-hued hillside homes; glory in a springtime morning on the terrace of a trend-setting Paris florist; and enjoy a pre-Christmas evening at the Left Bank’s iconic Brasserie Lipp. Design elements are as handsome as ever. Lush four-color endpapers, generous space for jotting daily notes, a ribbon stitched in to mark each week, and back matter that includes decorative address pages are what the Diary’s worldwide legion of fans have come to expect.
