Mrs. Blandings and I have both talked about artists Andrew Zega and Bernd Dams, and their exquisite book of watercolor renderings, Chinoiseries. (Apparently this is Kelly Wearstler's favorite book too.)
Although it was originally published as a collector's edition and priced over $1,000.00, it is scheduled to be released in April by Rizzoli, priced at a much more affordable $60.00. Above is a sneak peek at the cover. Shortly I hope to share a little preview of the forty-two pavilions and garden follies featured in the book. I happen to own another work by the duo, Palaces of the Sun King: Versailles, Trianon, Marly--The Chateaux of Louis XIV. So I have high expectations for the spring release.
