Every page of this delightful book - meticulously reproduced from the sketchbooks that Anne Desmet has used since her first travels to Greece in the 1980s - is soaked with the sunshine of the Sporades. Desmet's drawings show the daily life of her chosen destinations and the bobbing fishing boats, shady streets and bright blue Mediterranean views that make them so appealing. Desmet commits every detail to paper, and the small-scale format emphasises her distinctive flair for capturing the relationship between extreme foreground and distance. This is a unique opportunity to explore the Greek islands, through the affectionate eyes of a meticulous artist. AUTHOR: Anne Desmet RA specialises in wood engravings, linocuts and mixed-media collages. She lives and works in London and was elected a Royal Academician in 2011. For fifteen years she was editor of Printmaking Today magazine and has published three printmaking books.
