A "stunning, dazzling" find across the pond, per a French book publisher: a sketchbook that belonged to Dutch master painter Vincent Van Gogh, AFP reports. "This sketchbook was known only to the owners, myself, and the publisher," a Seuil official told the news agency Thursday, noting that the drawings will be published in November and called Vincent Van Gogh: Le Brouillard d’Arles (The Fog of Arles). And it's obvious they're hyping up the book's release by revealing very few details. "No further information will be divulged until the world press conference to be held in Paris in mid-November 2016 on the eve of the book's arrival in bookstores in the various countries," a Seuil statement says, per Atlas Obscura.
