Moleskine As Photography Book

A photography book made from a Moleskine Japanese album, called “Le Ban des Utopies,” by Cyrille Weiner. There’s something very beautiful and simple about it…   See more at le ban des utopies | silverpoetics.

Courtney Wotherspoon’s Sketchbook

I always enjoy the Sketchbook Sneak Peek series at Design Sponge. Here’s one from a while back, featuring Courtney Wotherspoon. What are your go-to sketch book supplies? Are there any brands or media that you’re particularly drawn to? Pens, Uni-Ball Deluxe Micro, always black. Sometimes a blue ballpoint pen sneaks in if I can’t find […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Sarita

Sarita emailed me some photos of a great collection! Sarita says: “I’m not even  sure if this number is accurate, but I believe I have about 25 unused & 35 used or briefly written in notebooks in this collection. I have a very bad habit of picking up notebooks that are cute and I end […]

Moleskine Monday: “The Comeback of the Notebook”

Newsflash! People like using notebooks, even in our digital age! Below is a screenshot of a German video news segment (in English) about people using notebooks and sketchbooks, particularly Moleskines. My favorite part is the appearance of fellow notebook blogger Christian Mahler from Notizbuchblog.de. See the video at The Comeback of the Notebook | All […]

Review: Daler Rowney Ivory Artist’s Sketchbook

I purchased this sketchbook at Lee’s Art Shop in NYC (which is always worth a visit if you’re in town). I was attracted by the size and shape, as you don’t see that many slim softcover sketchbooks that are truly pocketable. This one certainly is– it’s flexible enough to keep in a back pocket but […]

Moleskine Monday: New Products

It’s always interesting to see what new products pop up on Amazon for the coming year. There are quite a few “Chapters Journals” in various colors and sizes– unusual ones for Moleskine, such as 3.75 x7,” 3 x 5.5,” and 4.5 x 8.25.” The colors include “old rose,” “tawny olive,” and “plum purple.”  There are […]

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! I spy a Star Wars Moleskine and a Penguin notebook and lots of other unidentified notebooks. I love the way they’ve taken over her entire table! Thanks […]

Moleskine Monday: Evernote Expansion

Moleskine’s Evernote collection keeps growing, as they now offer various options in pocket and large size, including squared, lined and plain pages, as well as the heavier-weight sketchbook pages, softcover journals, and a planner. Presumably this means the products have been successful, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone using one. I occasionally use […]

Review: Pen & Ink Squared Notebook

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 […]

Jodi’s Finished Sketchbook

A tantalizing glimpse of a finished sketchbook: “Just finished a Moleskine watercolour sketchbook. Woo hoo! Nothing beats the feeling of the last mark of your pen on the final page. I know not long ago I said I’d finished another sketchbook but it’s not like I just whipped through a new one. I had actually […]
