Twelve sheets of gift wrap, featuring drawings by architect Robert Adams

Twelve sheets of 19.5 x 27.5 inch wrapping paper are folded into a paperback book, which has a notepad binding for a clean, easy-tear off. Robert Adam (1728–92) was one of the most important British architects working in the Neo-classical style. He was a main force in the development of a unified style that extended beyond architecture and interiors to include both the fixed and moveable objects in a room. He incorporated design ideas from ancient Greece and Rome into his forms and decoration. In 1883 Sir John Soane purchased 9,000 drawings and watercolors by Robert Adam and his brothers—the richest collection of architectural drawings in Britain and an untapped treasure trove of unique designs for ceilings, carpets, wallpaper, and much more.


Robert Adam (1728-1792) was a Scottish neoclassical architect, interior designer, and furniture designer.
