Provence Sketchbook takes the reader through this historically rich region that also boasts some of France’s most breathtaking landscapes. As the first Roman province outside of Italy, Provence has a wealth of architectural styles stretching back through the millennia, and as such, is a fascinating study for visitors.

Evocative watercolours and illuminating commentary combine in this book, bringing to life a variety of Provençal scenes that will prove equally delightful to those familiar with or new to the region.


Fabrice Moireau is a seasoned traveller who frequently brings back from his journeys sketchbooks that are valuable cultural and ethnographic records in themselves. He is particularly interested in the world’s architectural heritage, and in plants and gardens. In his watercolour paintings Moireau seeks to illustrate his fascination with streets and cityscapes by subtly playing with light and shadows.

Moireau is a graduate of the renowned École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art in Paris. The other titles in the series by the same artist include Paris Sketchbook, Venice Sketchbook, Loire Valley Sketchbook and Rooftops of Paris, also published by Editions Didier Millet.


Phillipe Testard-Vaillant, a journalist, was born in Grasse, the "perfume capital of the world". He currently lives and works in the Côte d'Azur, in Antibes. He is the author of various titles, including Le Guide du Paris Savant and Mon corps, la première merveille du monde. He has also contributed articles to many different magazines, such as Beaux-Arts Magazine, Les Cahiers de Science et Vie and Le Journal du CNRS.
