(Connaissance et Mémoires, 2008)
Preface by Charlotte Moss
An Architectural Alphabet comprises 26 small-format watercolors incorporating the letters of the alphabet in architectural or garden-themed vignettes. Taking their inspiration from Ancien Régime France and the Grand Tour, the watercolors evoke the playfulness and exoticism that inspired the architects and garden designers of the period.
The small-format volume (7 x 8½ in., 96 pages) presents the alphabet in a collector's edition of exceptional quality and is prefaced by Charlotte Moss, the Manhattan-based interior designer (the Marquis de Breteuil, proprietor of the Château de Breteuil, prefaces the French edition).
The book is limited to 500 copies in each language, and is signed and numbered and bound in grey silk, in the Chinese fashion, and slipcased.
