It was there that he produced some of his most beautiful and best-known paintings, as well as another masterpiece: this enchanting journal. Complete with sensuous woodblock prints and sketches, this exquisitely designed editionfirst published by Chronicle in 1994 and now reissued with a beautiful new jacketis still the only translation to contain all of Gauguin's richly colored illustrations of the Tahiti diary.
