This notebook is decorated with the famous Scottish Thistle, a national emblem. Legend has it that the thistle was adopted as a symbol of Scotland when an approaching Viking, who had stepped on a thistle, cried out in agony. This alerted the sleeping Scottish warriors who duly defeated the invaders. Intricate embossing and gilding adds a richness to this attractive memento. The notebook has 88 lined ivory pages.
