Le petit livre de la Loire - "Instants"

Published on 30 March 2018 - Updated 23 May 2018

"Instants, le petit livre de la Loire" is a stunning photo album. The first instalment of a collection published by IDLoire, which sets out to illustrate different Loire-based themes in small format (the Loire source, the beaver, the play of light, rivercraft, the Loire seen from above and more). Printed on premium paper which perfectly reproduces the colours and is agreeable to the touch, the book's pocket-sized landscape format is both practical and appealing, and makes it especially handy for carrying around!


The photos in this first edition of "Petit livre de la Loire" are "instants", snapshots of the Loire, but did not come about by chance for all that. I love rivers, and especially this Loire Valley – from its source all the way to the ocean – and I create situations in which there is a high chance that the river will catch me by surprise.
