I got these little bad boys in the mail the other day and have been dying to put them to use.
These are Moleskine (pronounced mole-skin) journals, and are by far my favorite journals of them all. These legendary notebooks began in France by a small French bookbinder and soon traveled its way into today’s world of instant imagination recording. These journals come in all shapes and styles—there are ruled journals, squared journals, blank journals, even agenda-setting journals. And all have little pockets in the back to keep those I-might-use-this-at-one-point-in-my-life things with you. Some notable Moleskine notebook users include Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemingway.
Actually, if I can name drop, my brother is the epitome of a Moleskine user. He's been coming up with some rad designs in his notebooks over the years, and has made them into a nifty little business.
Enough of this talk, I think the Moleskine motto says it all, “a brand that identifies a family of notebooks, diaries, and city guides: flexible and brilliantly simple tools for use both in everyday and extraordinary circumstances, ultimately becoming an integral part of one’s identity.” So, long story short, I got some notebooks and love them, and now want to share them with everyone.
