Named a Best Gift Book by InStyle

Nathalie Lété is the rare artist whose work is so distinctive and widely appealing that she has become a global brand, having garnered a cultlike following for her unique pop- and folk-art aesthetic. Lété’s iconic work has been immortalized by companies around the world that clamor for her products and seek her out for collaborations: Anthropologie has been selling her housewares for over a decade; she has designed textiles for Issey Miyake; her accessories are sold in high-end boutiques like Astier de Villate in Paris and Isetan, the trendiest department store in Tokyo.

Now, for the first time, Lété has curated over 200 of her best-loved paintings into a covetable magnum opus that will entice those who are discovering her for the first time as well as her legions of fans.

  • “Who needs Prozac if you have In the Garden of My Dreams? Lété’s bright, folk art–like paintings of animals, children, flowers, and much more are quite the antidote for the winter blues.”

About the Author

Nathalie Lété studied art and fashion in Paris and lives and works in France. Her father was Chinese, and her mother was German. Her parents’ cultures inspired her love for vintage illustrated children’s books, folk art, antique toys, engravings of flowers and animals, and colorful textiles. She spent her childhood drawing, knitting, and tinkering with materials such as cardboard and string. As an only child, she took inspiration from fairy tales to create imaginary worlds for herself filled with majestic woodland creatures and whimsical objects. Today, through painting, ceramics, embroidery, and other mediums, Nathalie creates dreamlike worlds that are full of fantasy and harmony.
