A FLAME TREE SKETCHBOOK. Beautiful and luxurious, the sketchbooks combine high-quality production with magnificent art. Perfect as a gift, the thick paper stock makes them ideal for sketching and drawing. Features a wide range of well-known and modern artists, with new artworks published throughout the year.

BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED. The highly crafted covers are printed on foil paper, embossed then foil stamped, complemented by the luxury binding and bookmark ribbons. The covers are created by our artists and designers who spend many hours transforming original artwork into gorgeous 3d masterpieces that feel good in the hand, and look wonderful on a desk or table.

THE ARTIST. Painter, draughtsman, architect, military engineer, musician, scientific researcher, designer: Leonardo da Vinci was all these and more, and through his drawings we find the most direct access to his genius. The Head of the Virgin uses delicate shading and subtle gradations in red and black chalks. The approach, known as the sfumato technique, creates this realistic and beautiful image.

THE FINAL WORD. As William Morris said, "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
