Le Massif du Queyras - Mont-Viso - Book of watercolors by Alexis Nouailhat with texts in French and Occitan by Marie Tarbouriech.
The attraction exercised by the Queyras can not be explained by the mere physical reality of its mountains. At the time of rationalization where one would like to know everything, study everything, understand everything, what would indeed be Mount Viso without its nebbia scarves that suggest more than they mask? What was the use of this vertical impulse if one saw it as an enormous chaos of rocks and ice? And what would be worth a hike through the alpine pastures if you only perceived herbs and rocks and did not think of the herds in summer or chamois yet invisible? There is no difference between a mountain walk and this beautiful book by Alexis Nouailhat and Marie Tarbouriech.
Although the technique of the artist deserves all the qualifiers, watercolors remain only windows on a universe where the imaginary is king, where understanding is not the essential. The texts in patois give to this work the cross-border dimension which is the very essence of this massif.
So take the time to dream by flipping through these pages, imagine what is only suggested, perceive the sun that burns, the lombard that blows, the race of a deer ...
