The Beauty of Embroidery and Vintage Scientific Illustrations Combined into These Hand-Crafted Notebooks

01The Beauty of Embroidery and Vintage Scientific Illustrations Combined Together

Athens-based artist Chara combines her love for embroidery and the passion for  Anatomy, Sciences, Japan and Nature into these unique embroidered notebooks.

Chara is the owner of “Fabulous Cat” (Etsy shop) where every product is made to order.

I was always fond of the paper world. Paperspencilspens, ink, all these materials have always been part of my everyday life. Even as a child I used to examine every attractive notebook I was presented with and try to make my own.As to the decoration of my books I draw my inspiration from  the Japanese way of living and art, anatomy drawings which I find haunting, mathematics which I find unexpectedly appealing in their graphics, art, nature, anything that attracts my attention! When I see something interesting I use it in the making of a notebook. It is as simple as that: I enjoy doing what I do and I invite other people to share my pleasure.” (interview from Etsy Greek Street Team’s Bolgspot)
