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.

Product story

Royal Academician Anne Desmet commits every detail to paper, and the book’s smallscale format emphasises her distinctive flair for capturing the relationship between extreme foreground and distance. Desmet notes the locations of each sketch, allowing the reader to follow her from island to island across the Aegean Sea. This is a unique opportunity to explore the Greek islands through the eyes of a meticulous and precise artist.

This gem of a book follows Desmet’s bestselling sketchbook An Italian Journey.
