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 […]
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, […]
John Wooley gives us a tour through his HandBook Journal. He used this as a travel journal when he was 10 years old and the artwork is quite amazing for someone of that age!
Andrea Joseph shows off some neat sketches in various colors of pen and pencil, all in a Moleskine sketchbook. Here’s one of my faves: See more at andrea joseph’s sketchblog: four drawings, three places, one sketchbook.

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