About The Book
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 Ashmolean: Cranes, Cycads and Wisteria by Nishimura So-zaemon XII.
The Ashmolean is the University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology, founded in 1683. This beautiful hanging was presented to the Ashmolean Museum in 1958 by Sir Herbert Ingram, who travelled to Japan on his honeymoon in 1908. In Japanese culture the crane represents good fortune and longevity and is known as ‘the bird of happiness’ – a fitting subject for a newly-married couple.
