The School of Life, the organisation founded in 2008 by renowned philosopher and author Alain de Botton and now headquartered in London, delivers with their typical elegant brilliance a series of exquisitely designed and sustainably produced notebooks, packaged in threes and covering a good range of character and societal types: meet 3 Notebooks, 3 Thinkers. Perfect gift for just about anybody if you choose right. A newly discontinued line, we've got the very last ones of these simply gorgeous small notebook packages - get them quick!
History is filled with some fascinating 'schools of thought' dedicated to tackling life's big problems in distinctive ways. Each notebook carries an introduction to a great Pop Artist on the inside front page, their name beautifully printed on the cover - and is otherwise empty for your own projects. Pop-Artists featured in these notebooks: Warhol, Caulfield, Lichtenstein
Pop Art emerged in Britain and the UK at the end of the 1950s. It wanted to connect art to the ordinary objects of everyday life and with the images of commercial culture. Comics, adverts, mainstream films and television shows were – traditionally – regarded as vulgar and as unworthy of notice by serious, elite artists. Pop Art recognised their value - starting from the generous, democratic insight that the ideas we need might turn up in surprising places. The ordinary is honoured, as it always should be.
