It was my ongoing quest to read for pleasure that led me to the world of Chronicle Books. The publishing house has a wicked sense of wit, a quality evident in its unique titles. My first purchase: The Little Pleasures of Paris in 2018 as sustenance for my French soul. My second: Provence and the Cote d’Azur in 2020 for a friend on the brink of a solo trip to France. City Walks: London was a gift from former coworkers in 2013 to commemorate my move to London. These days, I’m savoring the remnants of summer with content that nourishes my artistic soul, and my recent visit to Chronicle Books’ online store presented new creative avenues. The company’s thought-provoking titles are ever-present in my perusal of museum shops, bookstores, and Amazon. They’re never out of sight, and consequently, never out of mind.
