Notebook Addict of the Week (again):Sarah C.

Sarah was first featured here as an addict in January 2014. “Notebook addict update. Last fall I sent a photo of my collection which I thought was complete. Over the winter I found notebooks I had missed and since have purchased or added new. 1. Rhodia Spiral bound with graph paper – gift. 2. Rhodia […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Toby

This week’s addict tweeted a photo of his collection with the note “so, this is what I had in arm’s reach today; decided to spread it out and see. “ I love this collection! There’s a little of everything– Rhodia, Doane Paper, Whitelines, Federal Supply Service military notebooks, Furrow Books (a Kickstarter project), Piccadilly, Apica […]

Japanese Stationery Magazines (and Giveaway!)

I don’t remember how I first heard that there was such a thing as Japanese stationery magazines, and I’m not even sure if “magazine” is the right word for them. The first one I’d heard of was a series of numbered volumes called “Note and Diary Style Book.” I searched for them on Amazon Japan, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Shopping for Notebooks at Book People

I recently went to Book People, a great independent bookstore in Austin, Texas. They have a huge selection of gift items and stationery, including lots of notebooks from Moleskine, Leuchtturm, Miquelrius, Michael Roger, HandBook, Paperblanks, Rhodia, Field Notes and many more. Here’s what I had to snag for myself, as I’d never seen these in […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Zachary

This week’s addict won one of my giveaways (the Halaby Aero notebooks), and just happened to mention that he already had quite a collection. Of course I asked for photos!   Zachary says: “I’m an architecture student so I’ve gone through four years of trying find the perfect sketchbook/notebook and another four years of still […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Rene

This week’s addict calls himself a “hoarder!” Yet he also has a generous spirit in his addiction: “I typically give most of these away, especially the Moleskines, to students as they want to write in what I’m writing in. I do journaling with them also so we kinda compete.” From top left: A three pack […]

Softcover and Single-Signature Notebooks from My Collection

On my “to-do” list for this blog has been a comparison of various notebooks in similar styles. I thought I’d do a post about softcover notebooks, and one about single-signature notebooks, similar to Field Notes and Moleskine Cahiers. So I went rooting around in my collection to find various examples of these styles, but the […]
