5.0 out of 5 stars A unique and pleasurable read, 12 Dec 2003
This review is from: Loire Valley Sketchbook (Sketchbooks) (Hardcover)
A mixture of delightful water colours, history book and travel guide, this is one of those read and read again books that you will share with guests - especially if you have a house in the Loire where it would become an excellent reference for visitors.
The style is very easy, enabling the reader to dip in and out, whilst the content is sufficient to make it more than just a picture book.

This review is from: Loire Valley Sketchbook (Sketchbooks) (Hardcover)
Length:: 0:56 Mins

This is one of the many sketchbooks I have of Fabrice Moireau.

Loire Valley is known for its beautiful chateaux and gardens. In 2000, UNESCO added a region of the river valley to its list of World Heritage Sites. It's a beautiful cultural landscape of historic cities, villages and amazing architecture.

The watercolours of Fabrice Moireau are enchanting, as usual. There are paintings of beautiful houses by the river, workers working on vineyards, the exquisite architecture of the chateaux, and the beautiful townhouses. The chateaux are just majestic.

I've checked out some photos on Flickr, but I must say that it's hard to match the charm of watercolours.

Highly recommended.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably more beautiful than your photographs in Loire Valley, 9 Dec 2007
This review is from: Loire Valley Sketchbook (Sketchbooks) (Hardcover)
I bought this book on my holiday in Loire Valley. Every time I open this book I found myself revisiting the beautiful places again. Nice paper, beautiful and atmospheric paintings, keen and detailed observations and it makes the place so real. Just a joy to look at it every time and re-living the holiday.

This review is from: Loire Valley Sketchbook (Sketchbooks) (Hardcover)
This book is a wonderful memento of a holiday in the Loire valley. The beautiful watercolour paintings are a refreshing change from the usual holiday photographs. It is a delightfully illustrated art book, as well as a good quality holiday souvenir.
