Winner: Jane Robinson

Planète Gascogne is artist Perry Taylor’s fourth book of collected humorous drawings depicting the humanity and heritage of Gascon life.

Wonderfully skilled at using pen and ink, and using a palette of muted colours, blues and greens, rusty oranges and mustardy yellows which reflect the earthy splendour of Gascony, Perry’s truly beautiful drawings present an affectionate celebration of the French way of life. Sitting at a street café, market day gatherings, herding free-range chickens, farmers and gardeners, wine makers, rugby-loving locals and the quintessential “mamie” and “papi” – Perry’s characters are those you’d recognise from anywhere in rural France.

This is a lovely coffee table book, an ‘Anglo-Gascon’ view of life in rural France that takes you away from the cares of today’s world. It makes you smile and nod in recognition if you know Gascony and yearn to discover it for yourself if you don’t.
