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, […]

This week’s addict emailed me some lovely photos of an extensive collection! In her own words: I have been writing since I was 13 years old and have had passion for journals ever since.

Notebook Addict of the Week: Allister

Allister emailed me to share this photo of his collection, which is one of the most attractively arranged ones I’ve seen!

Notebook Addict of the Week: Bubba

This week’s addict emailed me some photos and the following story: “I’ve loved notebooks since I was a little kid.

Frances G. Spencer’s Notebook

Her collection, one of the largest in the US, is now housed in the archives of Baylor University. “The Frances G. Spencer Collection of American Popular Sheet Music contains […]

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 […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Tracey

This week’s addict is on Twitter as @Thriftygal, but it doesn’t look like she’s all that thrifty when it comes to buying notebooks! Look at this glorious mess!

After noticing that they seemed to have scaled back their list of cities quite a bit (Moleskine Monday: Did the World Just Get Smaller?), I’ve been snapping up other cities wherever I can, often at good discounts off the original list price. Here’s my collection thus […]
