For all your thoughts, feelings or notes … The notebooks of the Flower Desk line contain one hundred sheets of valuable paper in an elegant ivory colour, which greatly enhances the pleasure of writing. A precious image of blue Iris flowers from the French herbal Herbier Général de l’Amateur decorates their cover.
The history of botany and the disclosure of its most rare and precious aspects has always been part of Aboca’s project. The Herbier Général de l’Amateur, comprising eight volumes, was printed in Paris between 1816 and 1827. The watercolours, from which the engravings - manually coloured upon publication - were obtained, were painted by the famous botanical painter Pancrace Bessa upon request of Charles X of France.
A cover with Amarillys (Amarillys bella donna) pink flowers is also available.
