FLIPCLIP Kickstarter

Here’s another Kickstarter from the maker of the Penroll, which I reviewed a while back. The Flipclip also allows you to keep pens and pencils tidily attached to your notebook, in a clever hinged clip that opens so your notebook can still lie flat on a desk. Check it out soon, as the Kickstarter deadline […]

My Latest Sketchbook

I just finished a sketchbook, exactly a year a year after I started it. This was one of my old Modo & Modo original Moleskine sketchbooks. I have a hoard of these older ones and they are still my favorite sketchbook for everyday use– they stand up well to most of the pens I use, […]

I’m not sure about the other notebooks, but the other funny thing I noticed about this picture is that I have the same […]

A Five-Year Old Notebook Fan!

This is one of my favorite reader-submitted photos ever– meet Tholakele, a 5-year old from South Africa.  On a trip to Paris, left the toy department at Le Bon Marché empty handed and instead picked out a notebook and pen and ink set for herself, which she tried out the minute she and her mother […]

Why We Love Stationery

We live in a digital age, yet sales of good old fashioned paper are way up. Why? An article in the Guardian provides quite a good answer: We all love stationery (some more moderately and tastefully than others). But why? It seems to me to offer two great and seductive promises. The first is that […]

In Praise of Notebook and Pen for Creative Writing

I enjoyed this article, which makes some great observations about writing in notebooks vs. on a computer, or even a typewriter: Everything I’ve ever written was composed in notebooks first. I have hundreds of them filled with my scribbles tucked away in boxes. I also buy them obsessively, so I probably have just as many […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: DayTripper

This week’s addict displays a very tidy shelf of notebooks on his Flickr page: That turquoise pen is a nice bonus too! See original image at Journals, Moleskines, Notebooks on Flickr – Photo Sharing!.
