The iconic, collectible FRENCH COUNTRY DIARY debuts for 2012 with a dazzling new design featuring exclusive Olivades fabric patterns, vintage typography, and, as ever, the lush, evocative photographs of Guy Bouchet. Each of the fifty-two week-at-a-glance spreads offers an intimate vignette of the French countryside, including gardens, private homes, gastronomy, villages and inspiring landscapes. Building on its sell-out international success last season, the forthcoming FRENCH COUNTRY DIARY, created by Linda Dannenberg for Arts & Style Publishing, promises to be one of the most beautiful and sought-after engagement calendars for 2012. The Diary's captivating design by Mary Jane Callister enhances the romantic Gallic mood of this unique engagement calendar. From breakfast in a Provençal garden with warm baguettes and flaky croissants, to a connoisseur's antique shop in Paris known for its period treasures, the elegant FRENCH COUNTRY DIARY 2012 continues the beloved tradition of this perennially popular week-at-a-glance engagement calendar, with a new year of evocative images. We discover a romantic autumn garden in a palette of purples and blues at chateau near Compiègne; a dream-like Medieval village perched on a hillside in the Bouches-du-Rhône; and the candle-lit Christmas table in Burgundy with a tureen of foie gras as mouth-watering center-piece. Here are the luminous colors, the poetic landscapes, and the luscious flavors of France to savor from week to week. A rich blue fabric pattern called 'Boutis' from Olivades graces the vibrant slip-case, while the linen-textured book cover displays the year '2012' on a ground of brilliant fuchsia. Lush four-color endpapers, generous space for jotting daily notes, and back matter that includes decorative address pages are what the Diary's worldwide legion of fans have come to expect. New this year -- a satin ribbon stitched in to mark each week.
