Our A5 lined notebooks feature beautiful cover designs using images from our collection. There are four designs to choose from, and our multipacks one of each are great value.

Edward Lear ALS (1812–1888) drew many of the lithographs, including this one, for the works of English ornithologist, John Gould FLS (1804–1881). Lear was also an accomplished draughtsman, and often drew from live specimens. He is perhaps best known for his very popular Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae, or parrots (1832).

Lear is more commonly known today for his nonsensical poetry and prose such as 'The Owl and the Pussy-Cat'.

On the back is a quote from Charles Darwin:

‘Even birds have vivid dreams.’
