I’ve reviewed and mentioned the Pen & Ink brand sketchbooks several times on this site (see here, here, here, and here.) They are the closest substitute for a Moleskine sketchbook with the heavy-weight card stock paper, and they’re affordable and well-made. But I’ve never reviewed their other notebooks with standard weight paper. Squared notebooks are […]
I’ve mentioned and reviewed Field Notes a few times on this site, but I’ve never been a big fan of their notebooks and all the hype around them. It was great to be able to try their notebooks thanks to readers who sent me some samples, but I’d never felt compelled to buy them… until […]
The kind folks at Miro sent me a jumbo pile of journals to review, a selection of which appear below. They have some interesting points of difference with other products out there on the market, so let’s take a look. Miro has 4 product lines– two are wire-o bound with different types of cover materials– […]
Sandra has a great review of the Squared Moleskine notebook: Life Imitates Doodles: Bleedthrumanade in Moleskine & Review of the Moleskine Squared Notebook. She shares my concerns about the darkness of the grid lines in recent print runs of these notebooks: And as a bonus, we get to see some of her Zentangle-inspired art! Love […]
Here’s a nice detailed look at one user’s switch from Moleskine to Leuchtturm: Hello Leuchtturm1917, goodbye Moleskine!. The blogger at Recording Thoughts has been using squared Moleskines for a while but started to find the quality inconsistent: Ever since Moleskine moved their production to China every book is a little different than the previous one. […]
I just love the cover of this book: Lives Other Than My Own I haven’t read it yet, but I’ve read some of the author’s other work and loved it.

This week’s addict got my attention through a post on the Notebook Stories Facebook page, where she linked to the first in a series of posts about her notebook collection: The series continues in these other notebook posts: Notebook Collection Part Two, Notebook Collection Part Three, and Phases in the Life of a Notebook. The […]
Have you ever fantasized about a cool notebook from the past that’s no longer available, wishing that someone saved a stash of them and then put them up for sale again? Well, that fantasy might come true today! Back in 2003, Moleskine branched out from their standard hardcover notebooks for the first time, introducing the […]
This site is all in Russian, but looks intriguing nonetheless! It seems to be a good-quality spiral notebook that you can customize with your own cover image. A variety of paper styles are available. See more at On notebooks | «Not a book» – is not just a notebook.This is a designer!.
The Kolo Essex Travel Book is an interesting hybrid of a Moleskine-type notebook and a Filofax. From the outside, it looks a lot like a Moleskine, but with some important differences. The binding is cloth, with a window in which you can insert your own image. An elastic band holds it shut. On the back, […]
