Anne Desmet: A Greek Journey
Tour the Greek islands with Anne Desmet RA in her beautifully produced pocket-size book. Colourful and atmospheric sketches in pen, wash and watercolour conjure up the unique feel of the Sporades.
Every page of this delightful little book – meticulously reproduced from the sketchbooks that Anne Desmet RA has used since her first travels to Greece in the 1980s – is soaked in Mediterranean sunshine. Desmet’s drawings show the daily life of her destinations and the bobbing fishing boats, shady streets and bright blue seas that make them so recognisable.
