Jake Seliger is a novelist, (see his novels here) and blogs at The Story’s Story, where he has a variety of posts about using notebooks and reviewing various brands, some of which I’ve linked to before. I think this photo of his notebook stack qualifies for addiction! Some of Jake’s very valuable reminders about the […]
Tipster David B. sent me the photo below of Moleskines for sale at his local Costco: These are 6-packs of 10 x 7.5″ lined cahiers in assorted colors. At $19.99 for six, it’s a pretty good deal– the full retail price is normally $19.95 for a 3-pack of this “extra-large” size, though you can also […]
This week’s addict blogs at Crawford Writing Blog. She emailed me a link to her post about what’s she learned from journaling, which included the photo below of some of her collection. It must only show a very small fraction if she’s on journal #98! “I’ve been keeping a journal since I learned how to […]
I’ve had this Moleskine Sketch Album for quite a while and haven’t gotten around to reviewing it, mainly because I knew I’d probably be disappointed! Moleskine’s quality has been waning for years, and though their regular sketchbooks have been my favorite notebooks for a very long time, I’ve refused to buy any of the currently […]
Moleskine continues to mix up their product selection with unexpected departures from their standard styles. The latest is the “Blend Collection,” which feature woven cloth covers and contrasting elastics: The Moleskine logo on the back can’t be debossed as usual, so they’ve put it on a little patch: See more at Moleskine Blend Collection.
This week’s addict is a Moleskine hoarder… or at least was back in 2007 when this photo was posted to Flickr: A very consistent collection! Bonus points for the cool typewriter.
Here we have another Kickstarter project that I decided to support at a modest level. When I saw the design of the LatLon notebooks, I thought it was quite cool-looking, and an interesting concept. Each notebook has a letterpress printed cover featuring the contour lines of the elevation of an island or glacier or the […]
Moleskine has always been rather cagey about revealing the actual weight of their paper, unlike rival notebook makers such as Rhodia, Clairefontaine, Fabriano and many others who specify their paper weight in GSM (grams per square meter). GSM isn’t the only factor in how a paper performs, but it’s a good indicator, as thicker paper […]
Furrow Books was a Kickstarter project over a year ago, started by Aaron Zeller of the Zeller Writing Company. (They sell many popular brands of pens and notebooks, as well as other writing accessories, including their own handmade wooden items such as wax seal handles.) I decided to become a supporter at a modest level […]
This week’s addict was spotted on Tumblr via the Moleskine Lovers page, who reposted the original from Quick and Curious: Gotta love a nice tidy drawerful of notebooks.
