Corot Book Play


The cover of this book appealed to me because of it’s clean, textured, earth toned material with one simple symbol on the front cover. Usually I am all about color but the cover of this book is just soothing.


This cute little book is a biographical and critical study by Jean Leymarie, translated from the French by Stuart Gilbert. Camille Corot was a French painter born July 16, 1796. Maybe his work has to be viewed lifesize in a museum not all scrunched up in a small book. This is one of his paintings that I liked the most. Souvenir of Mortefontaine, 1864. Louvre, Paris


Then it was just fun with the book cover.

  1. This looks like the kind of book I would want to keep around just for the simplicity of the cover, too.

  2. I LOVE the cover . . . and your embellishments.
