'The world's most tasteful newspaper'
A bold, vibrant broadsheet 'for tastemakers', visually-arresting Semaine was 'dreamed up' in Paris and is printed in London. Anyone for an introspective summer? This special double issue—featuring Tunisian olive oil maker Sarah Ben Romdane on one side and 'troubadour revivalist' Antoine Bartherotte on the other—considers the notion of terroir; a sense of place:
'This summer, why not return to your own "terroir", and reconnect with your emotional, physical, and spiritual roots? In the end, don't we need to know where we come from to know where we are going? We wish you a summer not only filled with Sea, Sex and Sun as Serge Gainsbourg sang in 1978, but a summer where you can delve deeper and seize the opportunity to find your truth.'
