Let Jamie Beck transport you to the South of France with An American in Provence: part art book, part travelogue, part memoir, and part cookbook, and perfect for art lovers, Francophiles, and armchair travelers alike.

An American in Provence is a beautiful collection of exquisite portrait, scenic, and still-life photography from wildly popular and award-winning photographer Jamie Beck. Looking to slow down from her fast-paced life in New York City, Beck moved to the French countryside documenting her life as “An American in Provence.” What started as a one-year getaway became five as she continues to chronicle her life there through her photography on Instagram @JamieBeck.co, including the birth of her daughter, Eloise, all in the most breathtaking way.

In An American in Provence, Beck shares her tips and techniques for creating incredible photos and details her transformational journey as an artist and woman. Beck also includes farm-to-table recipes she's learned along the way, including Braised Beef Stew, Spring Chicken with Herbs de Provence, Fresh Tagliatelle Pasta with Spring Asparagus, and Lemon Meringue Tart. This stunning visual journey is sure to delight anyone who wishes to escape reality and immerse themselves in life in Provence.

A feast for the eyes and spirit. (And a holiday gift idea.)” —Forbes

“Jamie’s transporting book brings back all the wonderful memories of my first trip to France in my twenties, when I fell in love with the beauty of the country, and especially the vibrant flavors of the Provençal table.” —Alice Waters

“Jamie Beck is the Peter Mayle of our time. Her alluring and sensual portraits bring us one step closer to understanding the ineffable magic of the South of France. From flower markets to aioli recipes, her keen photographic eye and gentle soul bring back vivid memories of my childhood in Aix-en-Provence and invite us all to slow down and indulge our senses in the warm glow of the Provençal sun.” —Frédéric Fekkai

“Jamie captures the charm and romance of Provence in her stunning book, filled with lush photos of food, wine, and other glories of la France. An American in Provence is a woman’s journey of immersion in the country and culture of France, from the fragrant fields of lavender to the crusty bounty of her local boulangerie.” —David Lebovitz
