Escape to the French countryside year-round with this elegant desk diary. BUCOLIC ROADS through Frances country-side lead us to discoveries both humble and grand in our 33rd edition, from the thatched-roof farmstead in Normandys Marais-Vernier to the majestic Château de Montgeoffroy in the Anjou, a time-capsule of 18th-century style. We also visit amazing private collections: 19th-century faience in Bordeaux; Napoleonica in Paris; and a home devoted to parrots near Dieppe. Ample space for notes, and address pages enhance this unique calendar. LINDA DANNENBERG is the author of 12 books on French lifestyle and design. GUILLAUME DE LAUBIER is one of Frances foremost decorative arts photographers.
