I was quite excited when the maker of these new notebooks contacted me and offered a sample. They take the common format of a 3-pack of staple-bound pocket notebooks and add a flash of color and a touch of travelogue. Zettel Notebooks are made in Berlin, and each cover is a tribute to a part […]
Here’s the latest photo of the spare Moleskines I keep in my office… You know, for emergencies… There are more at home…
Another beautiful notebook page, with writing in French. This belonged to Alice Rivaz, a Swiss author. The notebook is part of an archive of her papers, which includes other notebooks as well (you have to click around a bit to find a few links to other images). Found via Google Image search.
I love this image of what seems to be an old diary written in Italian. Found at the link below– I’m not sure how the text and image relate, even after a translation to English! Via Taccuino di prigionia (17) | Brotture.
A beautiful set of notebooks, one lined, one plain and one squared: Spotted at the French online shop Papier Tigre, where they have a lot of other gorgeous designs too!
I wasn’t familiar with the artist Camille Bryen, but here’s a nice image of one of his notebooks: From an auction listing a few years ago for a lot of 4 notebooks.
I first heard about the TWSBI brand via the Fountain Pen Network forums, which are a great place to discuss and learn about all things pen-and-notebook-y. I personally don’t have a mania for fountain pens, but people who do are very picky about the paper they use them on, so I’m always interested to know […]
Here’s the stash of notebooks I brought back from my Amsterdam/Paris trip. First, two little notebooks from a local newsstand/bookstore near where I was staying. They had a nice selection of school supplies, and other notebook brands such as Moleskine, but these two were inexpensive and not like others I’d seen elsewhere. The blue one […]
That’s a lot of graph paper, quite impressively aligned! See more at Hey Notebooks.
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 […]
