It’s become quite common for people to customize Moleskines by having a company logo stamped or printed onto the cover. Sometimes there might even be some custom content inside. But it is relatively rare that actual books are published using a Moleskine notebook as the medium. Here are two that I own: The first is [...]
Aside from notebooks, one of my other great loves is books. So I completely identified with this week’s addict’s linking of the two : Bookish people tend to like books with words already in them as well as books that are blank and waiting to be filled by their own hands. I know I do. [...]
A while back, I posted about some notebooks that appear in the Tintin books. I also just caught a glimpse of one during the first few minutes of the Tintin movie! I haven’t watched the whole thing yet, and I’m hoping more notebooks will make an appearance. This one looks like a Moleskine reporter notebook. [...]

BookMarc is the Marc Jacobs bookstore on Bleecker St. in NYC. They have a cool selection of old and new books, and some rather nice notebooks: The notebooks are all lined inside, seem to be of pretty good quality, and say they are made by Chameleon Like, Inc. On the company’s website, they offer a [...]
An interesting and amusing article about a talk by Marco Beghin, President of Moleskine US, full of plenty of slogan-y stuff about “mobility,” “self-identity,” and “collective memory.” I’m not sure it answers its own question about what book publishers might be able to learn from Moleskine: Publishers who hope for their catalogs to become as [...]
