i am very aware that its august but as you may or may not have noticed i have pretty much been dormant here (except for queue) for the past 2-3 months or so 😅😅 so now i’m back i thought i might as well share the spreads i completed in the mean time!! july spreads will come along shortly as well as an update!!
so in june i went on a grad trip with my pals to tokyo so most of these pages are travel related! um also before i get asked this, no, i didn’t do those pages while travelling because that would actually be impossible 😂 i did them after i got back home!
and also because i feel kinda guilty taking people’s pictures off the internet, pasting them in and kinda reposting them back on?? i’m going to include a reference list in the cut below from now on!!
Gustave Flaubert’s travel diary among rare books at historic sale
“The handwritten manuscript is page after page of scratched out notes, smudges, comments and ink blots that reveal just how arduous the French novelist Gustave Flaubert found the writing process.
Celebrated for his first and most famous published work, Madame Bovary, which took five years to write, Flaubert was meticulous about the style and elegance of his work.
The 277-page Flaubert travel diary […] was written in 1848 when Flaubert and his friend Maxime Du Camp went walking in Brittany and decided to write a joint work: Flaubert the odd-number chapters, Du Camp the even. They were never published in his lifetime.” [source]
