I have gifted these two DEAR little books more times than I can count.
Each summer I look over my own worn copies
as charmed now with the tiny little illustrations and soft watercolor images
as I was the first time I saw them ever so long ago.
SUCH sweet humor.
DELIGHTFUL depictions of espadrilles and olives and seeds and sand...
ALL rendered with such delicacy of hand and spirit.
Order one for yourself here
(I always order the used hardback copies...only pennies... but also because...
I ENJOY seeing the little notations of previous owners and...
what pages were well loved,
where the eyes once hovered,
where imagination was captured,
where ideas were spawned.
I feel certain you will be as smitten with Sara Midda
If you too are captivated,
take a break from this heat
and savor a bit of Sara's watercolor world.
