Part of a series of exciting and luxurious Flame Tree Notebooks. Combining high-quality production with magnificent fine art, the covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed, then foil stamped. And they're powerfully practical: a pocket at the back for receipts and scraps, two bookmarks and a solid magnetic side flap. These are perfect for personal use and make a dazzling gift. This example features Owen Jones' Pompeii Mosaics.In his seminal book The Grammar of Ornament, architect Owen Jones laid out his design theories for decorative art and included examples like this taken from mosaics at Pompeii and in the Museum at Naples. The aim of the book was to show off the best decorative art across different cultures, and so featured a variety of patterns seen across Europe and the Middle East.
