Along the Mekong

The front cover of Arnaud d'Aunay's Au Fil du Mekong book
You may recall a blog posting of mine back in September of last year when I praised some beautiful watercolour paintings by the artist Arnaud d'Aunay, from a book published in France by Gallimard in 2004. I now have a copy of the book, Au Fil du Mekong, purchased from Carnets d'Asie in Phnom Penh, and some of the paintings are excellent, though the text is in French. It's the story of the artists' boat trip from Saigon to Angkor and what he saw and experienced along the way. I've reproduced below a couple of other examples of d'Aunay's paintings from the book.
