Klimt: The Kiss (Foiled Pocket Journal)
Part of a series of handy, luxurious Flame Tree Pocket Books
. Combining high-quality production with magnificent fine art, the covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed then foil stamped. And they’re delightfully practical: a pocket at the back for receipts and scraps, two bookmarks and a solid magnetic side flap. These are perfect for personal use, handbags and make a dazzling gift. This example features the famous and well-loved The Kiss
by Gustav Klimt.
The Kiss is a prime example of Klimt's 'Golden Phase', in which he began to feature especially sumptuous ornamentation on a regular basis in his paintings. The couple in this artwork represent the mystical union of spiritual and erotic love, and the connection of life and the universe.
