I like to read classics, historical fiction and world lit. Oh and I love short stories.

le Roi René dans tous ses États

Roi Ren? dans tout ses Etats (Le) - Collectif

A great book on the fascinating figure René d'Anjou: 15th century aristocrat, writer and art lover. The book covers various aspects of René's life, like his politics in the various lands he owned or made a claim to (including his Neapolitan adventures), his writings, his life as a a rich nobleman in 15th century France, and his significance in history.
The writing is accompanied by many images of himself and other important figures, his castles, the art made for him, images from manuscripts of his writings, and so on. All those photos of those beautiful castles make me want to go on a roadtrip this summer...
