It’s time yet again to crowdsource some of the “help me find this notebook” pleas I get, as well as some other tidbits from the mailbag:
Zachary wonders “is it wrong that I saw the movie Thor over the weekend and left realizing I really wanted to find out what type of notebook Natalie Portman’s character was using?”
Rebecca is “hoping you may be able to help me with a search for grandluxe’s Urban Jello notepad? I bought this pad on holiday in Kinokuniya in Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur, and then realized it’s the perfect notepad…. And I really want to buy several but can’t find any stockist anywhere! The notepad is A4 size, spiral bound with a clear plastic spiral rather than wire, and the paper is lined on one side and blank on the other which is perfect as I often have to draw pictures and take notes at the same time. Do you have any ideas on how to get hold of them? I’m based in the UK but happy to pay shipping.” Has anyone seen these anywhere?
Dave sends a link to an interesting leather-bound journal.
Andres shares his Moleskine art on his blog.
Mo points out a link to a book called “I Draw Cars,” which has a cool moleskine-ish look to it, and raised a ton of money on Kickstarter!
Laiameg shares a link to her handmade notebooks.
And John shared a link to this beautiful map in a notebook:
“On July 15, 1806, Zebulon Pike began his expedition to expore the
southwest region of the Louisiana Purchase. Shown here is a map from
one of his notebooks.”
Thanks for all the questions, tips and suggestions everyone!
