"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
These artful notebooks are inspired by the timeless beauty of vintage French Cahiers. The classic design features weighty natural paper, rounded corners, and thirty two lined pages. They’re versatile enough to display as art objects, jot down your thoughts, or give as a practical, thoughtful gift.
ABOUT THE ART
Emerson was a prolific essayist and philosopher who led the transcendentalist movement. He championed individualism and man’s profound connection to nature. This quotation from his mid 19th century essay Education explores man’s divine and essential connection to the natural world.
While the concept can seem trite and alien to a 21st century reader, perhaps it demonstrates the need to reacquaint ourselves with “the stream of power and wisdom which animates all whom it floats.”
In this illustration we wanted to explore nature as an animated, living thing - in this case the grassy hill is also a buck hiding in plain sight, the tree branches suggesting antlers.
