Sketchbook Manuscript «Van Gogh 1889 Plus» from the series «Evolution of Unreality»
The first mass-produced open-bound sketchbooks. The cover is featured with the famous Dutch impressionist Vincent van Gogh painting “A Wheat Field with Cypresses”.
An interesting fact – Van Gogh created “A Wheat field with Cypresses” at the end of the 19th century when he was in a psychiatric hospital in the French town of Saint-Remy for almost a year. Van Gogh, tired of the healing “soothing art”, began to paint the Mediterranean landscapes around him. Distorting reality in his usual style, Van Gogh endowed the picture with those emotions that tormented his soul: sadness and loneliness. It was not by chance that cypresses were chosen by him as the central object of the painting since in the Mediterranean, these trees have long been a sign of sadness and grief.
“… endless fields under a cloudy sky, and I was not afraid to express in them a feeling of extreme longing and loneliness … I am almost sure that these pictures will convey to you what I cannot express in words, all that healthy and soul-strengthening that exists in the village, to my mind”, – Vincent Van Gogh.
Creamy unlined pages are great for liners, pencils, and pens. Sketchbooks open ideally 180 degrees and do not close randomly thanks to the open-bounding. High-quality stitching and gluing allow you to withstand loads, and a protective overlay on the cover will extend the life of your sketchbook. The set includes an inlay with a checkered and in-line ruler for ease of writing, making graphs, tables, accurate models, etc.
Manuscript sketchbooks serve as an excellent working tool for artists, designers, IT specialists, managers, and a fashion accessory to inspire creative exploits.
