David Roberts The Golden Gate Pocket Notebook
This mini-notebook is perfect for your purse or backpack. It has a hard cover with a spiral binding. The cover is beautifully illustrated with David Roberts' painting titled 'The Golden Gate ' and a little added touch of sparkling giltter. The Golden Gate is a sealed gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is the only eastern gate of the Temple Mount and one of only two that used to offer access into the city from that side.
David Roberts traveled from Egypt across the Suez to Mount Sinai, Petra, Jerusalem, and the Galilee producing a large collection of drawings and watercolors of all the major holy sites. These works formed the basis of the tinted lithographs published soon after his return to England, a collection which enjoyed immense popularity in England and the United States. It provided the public the first glimpse of the biblical landscape and monuments known only by name. Today Roberts' works are still enjoyed by those who appreciate the beauty of the Holy Land.
