Du lait français

I just finished the delightful French Milk by artist Lucy Knisley.

I remember hearing about this book a couple of years ago but just found it when I was browsing my local library last week. An illustrated diary/travelogue, Knisley's book describes her and her mother's adventures in Paris during their six-week holiday to France.

The book is mostly composed of illustrated diary entries and the occasional photograph. It's funny and smart and charming and made me wistful for all my lovely Paris memories. I also loved all the food descriptions (despite being a vegetarian myself).

You can find the author's website here.


  1. Maybe I should read this before I go travelling? Maybe I can borrow it from you love ;)

  2. I think you'd like it!

    I've already returned it to Unley library but check your local?

    Haven't yet started Jenny Kee (soooo many books by my bed right now) but looking forward to it.
