Notebook Addict of the Week: Mattias Adolfsson

This week’s addict is something of a celebrity: I’m sure you’ve seen the amazing artwork of Mattias Adolfsson— he does incredibly detailed whimsical drawings in Moleskines in a very recognizable style. He’s been featured frequently on various blogs and in books about illustration, sketchbooks and Moleskines. But what I’ve never seen before is his actual […]

Review & Giveaway: Ink Journal

This notebook is for all the fountain pen and ink fanatics out there: the Ink Journal. It was created by Tom Oddo of Goldspot Pens, who I am sure tests a lot of pens and inks, and as such, must have put a lot of thought into what a perfect ink-testing notebook would be. A […]

Moleskine Monday: A Comparison and Complaint!

I usually try not to jump on the bandwagon of talking about “how much better Moleskines used to be before they were made in China.” They were always made in China, and I can’t say I’ve always seen huge differences between the old Modo & Modo Moleskines I bought years ago and more recent ones. […]

Review & Giveaway: VS. Journal by Knock-Knock

It’s funny, I’m not a big user of prompted journals nowadays, but I remember having a few of them as a kid that I diligently filled out with answers to questions and information about my life. They are fun to look back at now, though the questions were pretty basic and not really very creative […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Miss Lai Lai

This week’s addict writes in detail about her love of notebooks and plans for using a new one: I have always been addicted to stationery, in particular notebooks and organisers. I can’t remember when or how the addiction started. Maybe it was since I was a little girl scribbling on my notebooks with “Dear Diary” entries. […]
