A sketchbook by Egon Schiele
A sketchbook by Egon Schiele | Egon Schiele

I gave this limited edition book to my spouse for his birthday yesterday. It is a very realistic replica of a sketchbook that Egon Schiele carried around with him-- including pencil smudges and soiled paper edges! It comes with a presentation box and a small hardbound book of notes (the sketchbook is softbound like a small moleskin pad). I attached this post to an older record, although this book is newly published by the Neue Galerie in NYC.

saresmoore Wow! What an incredibly lovely and thoughtful gift! 2y
Suet624 I'm basically going to echo Sara here, but what a thoughtful and caring gift. ❤️ 2y

ValerieAndBooks How nice! And, hope he has a great birthday. 2y
Izai.Amorim Egon Schiele was GOOD! 2y
Hobbinol @saresmoore AND @Suet624 I think you are both so thoughtful to say that. Thank you! 2y
Hobbinol @Booksandcooks I appreciate that! I think I'm going to enjoy it every bit as much as he is. 2y
Hobbinol @ValerieAndBooks Thank you! He did! (But to be honest: as a retired political science teacher, he probably would have been just as happy at home watching the news. It has been riveting this year, but definitely has taken a toll on my TBR list.) 2y
Hobbinol @Izai.Amorim Glad you think so too! He had a very... fertile... creativity. Brilliant. 2y
ValerieAndBooks @Hobbinol a toll on your TBR? As in you get to read more, or as in you're indulging in bibliotherapy (by adding to the TBR)? 😉 2y
saresmoore @Hobbinol , @Suet624 and I are basically the same person—sisters from different misters, if you will. ☺️👯 2y
Suet624 @saresmoore 😂💕 true, true. 2y
Izai.Amorim @Hobbinol Viena is not my cup of tea but when I think about all those Schiele, Klimt @ Kokoschka works they have then I consider a trip! 2y
Hobbinol @Izai.Amorim I can see that it would be expensive to think that way. They are wonderful artists who demand attention far and wide. 2y
DivineDiana Such a beautiful gift! 2y
Hobbinol @DivineDiana One of us had to have it and my birthday is not until the very end of the year! 2y
