An 18th century Provençal toile de Jouy graces the interior hard-cover of the 2015 Diary

THE FRENCH COUNTRY DIARY 2015 will arrive in stores nationwide and online at the end of August. Building on its international success last season, the French Country Diary, published by ABRAMS, is one of the most beautiful and sought-after engagement calendars for 2015. The iconic and collectible diary makes a well-priced gift of unparalled quality and refinement.


The elegant slipcase of the French Country Diary's 27th edition features a vibrant cherry-red and white Provençal fabric pattern from the venerable Olivades textiles company in Saint-Etienne-du Grès, embellished by an elegant white floral border fabric . Within the slipcase lies a linen-textured hardcover book with a gorgeous yellow and red toile de Jouy which displays the year ‘2015’ 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 18th-century village home in Burgundy; stroll along a sandy path crowded with buttercups on the Vieux Salins Beach in Hyères; spend a holiday afternoon at an elegant apartment in Lyons; explore romantic gardens of the historic Chateau de Valmer near Vouvray in the Loire Valley; admire the bounty of fresh summer vegetables at Sisteron's Saturday morning market; and enjoy a savory lunch in Paris at the new Bistrot Belhara on the Left Bank. 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.
