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 John Singer Sargent's Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose.Born of American parents in Florence, Italy, Sargent was brought up in Nice, Rome and Dresden - giving him a rather sporadic education but a very cosmopolitan outlook. Sargent later moved to England, home of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and it was here that he completed Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose, which shows many affinities with their style.
