Which Notebook Did I Write That In???

I’m impressed by Anne at Tagged and Cajoled, who writes about here notebooks in this post. She always knows where to look for things she’s jotted down. I sometimes know but often I might have to search back through several notebooks for something I know I’ve written, but I’m not sure exactly when or where. […]

Thoughts on Journaling

From The Unfolding Moment, this is a lovely post about the ups and downs of keeping a journal, and now it feels to go back and re-read old journals: Reflection: Leave the Roots On. Every once in a while, I become reacquainted with old notebooks. My life is flush with them: sketchbooks and art journals, […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Brooklyn Artist James Cospito

Here’s a nice image from Flickr, from someone who’s obviously a notebook addict! There are Moleskines, of course, but I think I also see a HandBook Journal and a Rhodia Webnotebook in there. You can see the artist’s work here. The photo was taken at the 13th annual D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival® (Sept […]

EBay Find: Scottsbluff Typewriter Company Notepad from 1949

Here’s another neat-o EBay purchase, a promotional notepad from a typewriter company! Actually, I guess they must have started out as a typewriter company but expanded into general office supplies, given the motto on the cover “Everything for the Office.” Inside it’s pretty simple: just plain perforated pages. There aren’t many pages left in the […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Range

I’ve noticed a couple of great posts about notebooks by Range over at Memoirs on a Rainy Day. I love it when people can just talk about their notebooks and why they like them and how they use them, as in this post: Notebook Obsession and Rhodia Love. He doesn’t have a photo of his […]

Kolby Kirk’s Hiking Journal

I love, love, LOVE Kolby Kirk’s travel journal. He’s documenting his project to do 100 hikes between May 5, 2009 and the end of this year. He’s about to embark on hike #77 as I write this! He uses a plain, pocket size Moleskine journal and each page is gorgeous– notes, maps, sketches, objects pasted […]

Bauhaus Moleskine at MoMA

I think I’m going to have to take a trip up to MoMA! I’m very intrigued by this Bauhaus Box– what exactly is in it?!? “Moleskine, the heir of the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers from Van Gogh to Hemingway, is pleased to announce the launch of two new products created to celebrate […]

Review: Doane Paper Notebooks

What nice people they are over there at Doane Paper… I’ve been intrigued by their products for a while but hadn’t gotten to the point of buying anything, mainly because you had to buy a set of 3 Utility Notebooks and I just wanted to try one… but by a happy coincidence, I was able […]
