Grimoires – Reliure Restauration, Tourrettes Var 2017


In Tourrettes Var, we found a fascinating  atelier.

I want to tell you about it. Isabelle Gimenez restores paintings.

It’s a painstaking task – with ear buds and tiny tiny brushes. When we “discovered” her, she was restoring a massive painting that had been obliterated by another painted on top.

She is also a bookbinder of meticulous precision and she works in leather.  I took some photographs that tell their own story.

Her atelier is very worth visiting – we think we’ll go back again next year. There is never-ending discovery if you enjoy art, in the whole of Provence, but Tourrettes Var is a jewel!

Enjoy my humble photographs.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!
