    Edouard Baribeaud: Carnac

Illustration: A peek into the sketchbooks of Edouard Baribeaud

Posted by Liv Siddall,

If a man can make white, plastic seating look enticing, then he’s surely some kind of wise oracle who knows too much. In Edouard Baribeaud’s (the name of a wise man) sketchbooks we find ourselves in parks and gardens across the world. Even though his drawings tend to be so simple that they’re almost a pile of wiggles, they’re also so self-explanatory that we know exactly where we are, what temperature it is, and what noises are drifting our way through the leaves. It would be children shouting, a distant chainsaw, a brief woof and the break of a wave.
