I noticed that the Moleskine I’m currently using seemed not to open quite as flat as my previous one. Closer inspection led me to discover that this notebook has only 8 signatures of pages, and the old one had 12. When I looked through various other Moleskines in my collection, I found a mix– most had 8, but a few had 12, with no seeming rhyme or reason to it. Some of the 8s were old Kikkerland-distributed Moleskines, and some were more recent ones without the Modo & Modo name on them.
How many signatures do your Moleskines have?
