ART hound

Geneva Anderson digs into art

Frances Rivetti’s “Fog Valley Crush”—an insider’s story of our glorious local food scene —here’s your chance to fund a limited “first vintage” edition

FR Fog Valley CrushIt’s time to give back and don’t be stingy!

Frances Rivetti, the British American writer whose wonderful blog, Southern Sonoma Country Life, has enriched our lives for several years now, has generously given of her time by writing delightful and impactful stories about our community.  She knows our local food scene like no one else.

She’s just written her first book —Fog Valley Crush: Love at First Bite— and has a Kickstarter campaign up and running to fund its publication. Her goal is to raise $7,500 and she’s already over half way home.  I got a great sense of satisfaction going to her Kickstarter page (click here) and getting my books early.  You just know it’s going to have a lot of previously unreported history in it if Frances has her hand in it!  In full disclosure, Frances is a colleague and friend and we don’t know each other as well as we’d like because we are just too busy to sit down and have a long chat.  One thing, I’m wondering who did the delightful art work for her cover?

  1. Geneva, we need to make a date! The incredibly talented, Petaluma based illustrator Nicky Ovitt http://www.nickyovitt.com/ designed the front and back cover of Fog Valley Crush as well as inside flaps. She is a Sonoma County treasure. She completely captured my book in her illustrations, we had so much fun working together. Lorna Johnson, also of Petaluma, designed the inside layout. The three of us put this book together over many pots of tea and scones in my West Petaluma kitchen.
