Synopsis: Just 3 km up the road from the beaches of the French Riviera lies the small French village of Biot. Surviving over five centuries, through war, religious aquesition, plague and political alliance, this village survives by the grace of the land it resides upon and the creativity of its people. First famed with the legacy of its earthenware jars, shipped throughout the Medditeranean and beyond from the 16th century through the 19th century it is now a mecca for the unique Bubble Glass produced by its artisans. The very rock surrounding this village has been part and parcel of its history, its character and heritage. It takes an artist (Ms. Vernon is a graphic designer and installation artist) to open our eyes to a procession of delights unlikely to be listed in travel guides. Her eyes took delight in everything from the lettering on ancient street gratings to the pigment beneath the paint curling off creative door treatments. Promenade à Travers Biot is a love letter to a village that kept revealing more to Ms. Vernon as she explored. In this book she shares the sweet details and more panoramic vistas. Promenade à Travers Biot is much more than a coffee table book: It holds the key to a new way of seeing, a new way of feeling, about everything around us. Whether or not you plan to visit this charming village, you ll close this offering with an altered sense of perspective about everything from the obviously lovely to the commonplace.
About the Author: Arita Vernon / Photographer Born in the US to a family of entertainers, her early life began as a colorful road trip as seen from the backseat of a Buick flying down the midwestern highways. I have paid it forward a generation with my own artistic talents in visual design and a collection of work inspired from my travels. While my careers includes design for theater, dance, independent film productions, print and gallery installations, my work reflects a certain texture drawn from an eclectic array of diversions, disciplines and detail collected from my journeys abroad. This offering is part of an ongoing series of inspiration unpacked from a suitcase of wonders found in the passages and boulevards of Europe.
