I love these photos, from a blog post by Jackie Morris where she’s collected a wide variety of images of writers’ notebooks: David Almond‘s notebook for Counting Stars: Robert MacFarlane’s notebooks: See lots more at Writer’s notebooks in pictures.
This week’s addict is the blogger at A Penchant for Paper. She’s been featured as an addict before, with a post about how she uses her various notebooks, but I’d somehow missed an earlier post with these yummy photos of her collection of notebooks and pens. These are from 2009, so I’ll bet she has […]

Here’s some questions from readers that have come in over the last few months. Some of them are stumpers, for me at least, but I hope some other sharp-eyed readers will be able to answer! From Chris: Do you by any chance know what type of notebook/journal Bradley Cooper is using in the movie ‘Burnt’? […]

I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving! Hope it is full of family, friends, fun, and feasting before you start thinking about shopping… but once you do… here’s a few gift ideas for your favorite notebook addict–perhaps yourself! Brice Marden Notebooks: I posted about these recently, but hadn’t yet received my own copies of the facsimile […]
Flying Tiger is a Danish design store — they’ve recently opened a location in New York, and when I checked it out recently, I found that they have some amazingly cheap notebooks! They have colorful composition books for only $2: There are also 3 sizes of hardcover journals, 4×6″ for $1, 6×8″ for $2, and […]
It’s always cool to see someone turn their love of notebooks into a business: “Nicole Watkins knows firsthand that faithfully writing in a journal can change your life. “I’ve been journaling since I was a little girl. I loved that connection between the hand and the mind and writing would always get me through sad […]
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 […]
A neat story about Winnie Chan, a member of the family who owns Grandluxe (some of whose products I’ve reviewed.) “Some children shun their family business or become reluctant successors. Not Ms Winnie Chan. In fact, her childhood dream was to join her family’s bookbinding business, Grandluxe. “Growing up, my ambition was to be my […]
This week’s addict emailed me these photos of her collection: Her favorite is the pink Moleskine. Next on her wishlist? A customized Smythson. I like how the pinkish color tone seems to recur throughout her collection despite the wide variety in colors and designs. Thanks for sharing your addiction, Neysa!
Here’s another book I’ve been thinking about adding to my collection: Photographers’ Sketchbooks. Since it’s photography, not all of the “sketchbooks” are traditional paper ones, though a couple are shown below. From the review linked below: “This book is comprised of over 500 illustrated pages featuring the tangible objects that help these photographers realize their […]
