Anyway, one of my favorites this year is Marie-Antoinette and the Last Garden at Versailles by landscape designer and garden expert, Christian Duvernois. Don't let the title fool you, this is much more than a garden book. It highlights everything related to Marie-Antoinette's folly including the architecture and interiors with breath taking photos by everyone's favorite photographer, François Halard. It would be the perfect gift for any Francophile or gardener. Or maybe you could buy a copy for yourself so you have an excuse to sneak off for some for some alone time!
