Interior hardcover of the 2018 FRENCH COUNTRY DIARY with a linen-textured Provençal fabric print from the archives of Les Olivades.


The elegant slipcase of the French Country Diary's 30th edition features an elegant 18th-century toile de Jouy pattern called "Les Quatre Saisons" from the archives of Les Olivades, the venerable Provençal fabric company in Saint-Etienne-du Grès. Within the slipcase lies a linen-textured hardcover book in a handsome yellow and blue geometric pattern, which displays the year ‘2018' in a decorative medallion. Vintage typography and fifty-eight evocative new photographs by renowned Paris photographer Guillaume de Laubier enhance the captivating design of this unique engagement calendar.

Each of the week-at-a-glance spreads offers a vignette of the French countryside, including gardens, private homes, villages and inspiring landscapes. In this year's Diary we visit an 17th-century chateau Brittany; stroll through the open market in Saint-Tropez, among the stalls of florists, bakers, booksellers and olive vendors; spend an afternoon at an enchanting home in the Luberon; explore the world-famous wine estate of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Bordeaux's Médoc region; and regale in the pleasures of Paris, from Left-Bank bistros to the legendary Folies-Bergère. Design elements are as handsome as ever. Lush four-color endpapers, generous space for jotting daily notes, a ribbon stitched in to mark each week, and back matter that includes decorative address pages are what the Diary’s worldwide legion of fans have come to expect.


Illustrated with dazzling photographs by Guillaume de Laubier, including landscapes, exclusive interiors, village vignettes and must-try restaurants, each week is a beautiful and intriguing discovery in the 2018 edition of the FRENCH COUNTRY DIARY.

Decorative mini-calendars at the back of the Diary let you see the current year and the next at a glance.
