Notebook Addict of the Week: Suz Blackaby

This week’s addict is another discovery via Sharing Our Notebooks. Suz Blackaby is a writer of poetry, fiction and non-fiction for children. She’s laid out quite a collection of notebooks on this table! And yet she says she still resorts to jotting things on envelopes and napkins…   “So when it comes to notebooks, it […]

Review and Giveaway: PaperOh Notebooks

I think I understand how they came up with the name for this brand. If the people behind Paperblanks came to you and said they had a new line of notebooks, and asked you to take a look at them, you’d say “Oh!” when you opened the box and saw that they looked like this: […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Video Eleven

Here’s an addict with a nice assortment of notebooks and fountain pens. Interestingly, the notebooks seem to have quite a variety, but the pens look like they are all variations of the same brand… The photo tags mention Rhodia and Whitelines. I think I also spy Moleskine and Life notebooks.   See the original at […]

Paper in the Digital World

Some lovely notebook images and thoughts about why we still love paper, and in fact may love paper even more because our lives have gone digital. From the article: “If you find yourself dependent on notebooks, even if much of your work is online, you are part of a growing number of people who are […]

Moleskine Monday: Start-Ups Love Them

Just spotted this article: Why Startups Love Moleskines – The New Yorker, which notes that “the popularity of Moleskine notebooks seems to defy the widespread worship of technological innovations coming out of Silicon Valley.” Ok, that is a trend that has been talked about a lot, and I’ll actually read the rest of the article […]

Moleskine Monday: Sample Sale June 8 & 9, 2015

New York is always a-popping with sample sales. They often take over vacant storefronts, and usually feature clothes– for certain brands, you’ll see lines down the block to get in. To me, it always seems like more mayhem than it’s worth, so I don’t tend to shop at them. But this is one I would […]

Moleskine Monday: Chuck Palahniuk Relies on Them… But Burns Them!

Spotted in this weekend’s Wall Street Journal, among Chuck Palahniuk’s list of favorite things:   “I rely on Moleskine notebooks. I just fell into the habit—they’re so nice looking. I was in Madrid last summer, and found they had them in all these neon colors—wild bright reds and yellows—that I can’t find in Portland [Ore.], […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Clara

I stumbled across this week’s addict in her blog post celebrating National Stationery Day in 2012, where she lists a few of her favorite items, including, of course, notebooks!     “Moleskine notebooks, great piles of them: black for Proper Writing, occasionally red for moments of wild frivolity. Sometimes, if a story is going badly, […]

A Soccer Broadcaster’s Notebooks

I love notebook pages that are dense with information. These ones below, belonging to BBC Radio soccer commentator Nick Barnes, are just packed with writing, color and data– sometimes even little flags for the countries the players are from. All this information could have been captured in a less elaborate way, I’m sure, but Barnes […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Karen

This week’s addict could be thought of as a professional notebook addict, as she is the VP of marketing for Exaclair, whose brands include Quo Vadis, Rhodia, and Clairefontaine. On the Quo Vadis blog, she asks “Are Notebook Users Monogamous?” Based on this photo, I’d say not! Of course, any self-respecting notebook addict could not […]
