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 Made of Synthetic Skin

Ok, this would have to be one of the oddest notebook concepts I’ve come across! And maybe a little creepy… But it makes sense! “Not every artistic creation is an instant masterpiece, that’s why there are Moleskine sketchbooks. But where perfection really counts is with tattoos, so a magazine dedicated to the craft created a […]

Moleskine Monday: Voyageur Notebook Review

The Moleskine Voyageur notebook was introduced last summer, and so far remains a unique outlier in their product line. It’s an odd size, in between the classic pocket and large notebooks. It has a brown cloth-bound cover. It has a fancy die-cut paper wrapper with a travel-themed collage element. It has colored endpapers. I guess […]

Review: TWSBI Notebooks

I first heard about the TWSBI brand via the Fountain Pen Network forums, which are a great place to discuss and learn about all things pen-and-notebook-y. I personally don’t have a mania for fountain pens, but people who do are very picky about the paper they use them on, so I’m always interested to know […]

Digitize Your Notebook… Then Microwave It!

Here’s something I’d never thought about doing to a notebook: microwaving it. But there’s a new notebook designed for just that: with the Rocketbook, you can write your notes, upload them via smartphone, and then erase the whole thing by microwaving it, so you can reuse the notebook again and again (they recommend a maximum […]

They may not quite make you want to “toss your Moleskine,” as the author of the original post says, but they will certainly make nice additions to your collection! Read more at These 3 Beautiful Notebooks Will Make You Want To Toss Your Moleskine | Co.Design | business + design.

Bull & Stash Notebooks

Here’s another interesting notebook that was born out of a Kickstarter campaign. I like the simple, rugged leather covers and the ability to replace the paper inside, though I’m not sure I’d like the way the pad inside is bound, as it doesn’t seem like it would open flat.

Review & Giveaway: Stamford Notebooks

I’ve had my eye on Stamford notebooks for a while–  in fact, probably since they first started producing them in October 2013! In following their brand on Facebook, I was always impressed at the huge variety of colors and materials offered for their covers, and the fact that they are made in the UK. It […]

Moleskine Monday: Chapters Journals

What do you think of this new line of journals from Moleskine? The Chapters journals have a new binding style, section dividers that break each notebook into numbered chapters, and new sizes in a slimmer proportion than other Moleskine notebooks. “Divided into chapters, the journals keep your daily lists, notes and ideas organized in style.
