Moleskine

......................................................................................................
Love the Moleskine.

For those of you who do not know, it is the legendary notebook used by many famous writers & painters such as Picasso, Hemingway, and Chatwin. You can read about the history on the website.

If you have never experienced a Moleskine notebook/journal, I would highly recommend. It is a superb tactile experience.

If you are a Moleskine aficionado, then you must find out the rank of your addiction here. I am quite sure that it will help you cope. I am a level 4 addict, 'Apprentice'. (Because I embossed my name on the cover. Sweet. It was my first shot at it. I've gotten much better at it since then.)

I wanted to post a few photos of my Moleskine experience, and a sketch as well. The sketch below is the small beginnings of some of the work I posted months ago, the 'New Jerusalem'.

Check out the Moleskine website, you can get all sorts of journals, city guide journals, weekly planners, graph paper, Japanese according books, watercolor sketchbooks, etc. It's amazing. They also come in small, large, or extra large. You can pick them up at Barnes & Noble, Borders, stationary shops, and online of course.

I'm thinking about getting a pocket sized one for sketching design ideas ... enjoy.

Your blog entitled "Moleskine" is some of your best work to date...

ha. dude i love this post because it makes me love you. you have done very well making the moleskine look sweet and sassy. I definitely feel cooler.

And i have a clarifying question about my status. have i achieved apprentice status in and through your work embossing my moleskine on my behalf?!?!?!?!

In light of your recent involvement with moleskines, I submit to your authority...

Sir. Truly, my substitutionary work on your behalf has most assuredly transferred to you citizenship within the kingdom of 'Apprenticeship'!
