This week’s addict has a lovely and emphatically titled website: Pens! Paper! Pencils! All 3 are suitably celebrated there, including these notebooks: This beautiful collection includes Moleskine, Rhodia, Muji, Calepino, Field Notes, and Monsieur Notebook. I really love those nicely worn-in leather covers, from Davis Leatherworks. (where they are only $17!) Read more at Notebooks.
This week’s addict likes notebooks so much, she started her own blog to celebrate them! It’s called For the Love of Notebooks. She writes: What is really the appeal with a notebook?

I stumbled across this wonderful collection while searching for info about Edward Weston’s daybooks. I never did find a photo of those, but I’m so glad I found the Knitorialist!

This week’s addict wrote a guest post at pensetc about her love of notebooks: “1986. A “Wuzzles” notebook and pencil. My first session at The Brownies. I took notes. 1987.
