It’s been over a month (April 27th to be exact…I looked) since I wrote a post dedicated to a particular book. So I thought I’d take it easy on myself and start with a book I adored:
Le Road Trip
208 pages of pure awesomeness
You all know I love to travel, right? Consequently, I’m a sucker for books about travel, even though they usually make me green with envy. And even though I’m not a huge fan of France (actually, that’s not entirely true…it’s really Paris that doesn’t float my boat), I still finished this book green with envy.
But in this case it was over the author’s artistic talent. This is a gorgeous book. Go check out this video that features art work and text from the book. GO, I said.
Yes, the author wrote and illustrated every damn page of this book (gawd, I wish I could do that). She even designed the hand-lettered type.
As I said. Green.
Swift is an experienced traveller, but this is more of a combo honeymoon/trip to France journal, in which the author reflects on relationships and travel. She has a great attitude about travel, and if you are ever looking for a book to get you excited about a trip (especially to France), this would be the one.
