It’s fun to review things that stretch the boundaries of “notebook” a bit. The Notez notebook and Dayz planner certainly do that!

This one’s from the New York Times “T” Magazine of Dec. 8, a Moleskine planner belonging to Italian fabric designer Idarica Gazzoni:

Moleskine 2015 Dashboard Planner, Vertical, 12 Month, Large, Black, Hard Cover (5 x 8.25) They are also launching something I’ve long wanted […]
Susannah’s blog post has lots of great photos of the 8 Moleskines she is currently using, each for a different purpose, including an art journal, prayer journal and “everything I want to remember for eventually” notebook.

A fun New York Times article by Sloane Crosley. She’s been using the same Louis Vuitton planner and inserts for 22 12 years and counting: At the end of each year, I sit on the floor and go page by page through the old calendar, inking annual events into the new one, all the while […]
