Les grands espaces de Catherine Meurisse (dargaud)

Les grands espaces (French Edition)

Catherine Meurisse grew up in the countryside, surrounded by stones and trees, and with a building site in front of her eyes: the farm her parents were renovating in order to live there as a family. A big old house that is being transformed, trees to be planted, a garden to be imagined, nature to be observed: this is how the taste for creation is born and the beginnings of a future profession are born: draftswoman. With humor and tenderness, the author recounts the paradise of childhood, which nature, art and literature, her lifelong allies, can help to preserve as well as to overcome. Les Grands Espaces tells the story of a childhood and the imagination that unfolds there, in complete freedom.
