Notebook Addict of the Week: Video Eleven

Here’s an addict with a nice assortment of notebooks and fountain pens. Interestingly, the notebooks seem to have quite a variety, but the pens look like they are all variations of the same brand…
The photo tags mention Rhodia and Whitelines. I think I also spy Moleskine and Life notebooks.

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 no photos yet, and no descriptive info. The format says “diary,” but they don’t seem to be dated. All are soft cover, and page format options seem to just be dotted and ruled. Will these be something book-related? Intriguing…

There are also new collections of notebooks with Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Batman themes.
I was thinking that what Moleskine really should create is a daily planner specifically for art journalers. The Hobonichi Techo shows there’s a demand for a daily planner with a more free-form page. Moleskine’s own daily planner in the extra-small size comes with unlined pages, making it perfect for daily drawings, but a bit small. I was all excited when I first saw that, as I thought they’d changed the design of all the daily planners to having unlined pages, but it’s only that size– I guess they thought the lines made the extra small page too busy. If they made a pocket size and large size daily planner with unlined pages and slightly heavier paper that doesn’t bleed as much, I think a lot of people would embrace them for daily art journaling. People like Kathrin Jebsen-Marwedel have made a name for themselves doing daily artwork in Moleskine planners over many years, but lately she’s been complaining about the severe decline in paper quality. She points out that she’s never expected Moleskine paper to be perfect for all media, but their planners used to be able to hold up to watercolor and now they don’t:

moleskine planner paper qualityI don’t know if the lines bother her, but I think a plain, unlined day-per-page art journal would be a widely popular product if the paper was either the heavier weight sketchbook paper, or at least a version of their thin paper that was more in line with the quality of prior years. Would you buy one? Do you know of other planners with an unlined daily page layout?

Notebook Addict of the Week: Edmo Cabral

This week’s addict was found on Flickr. The collection is impressive, and I love the way he’s taken the photograph! Asked by a commenter what he uses all the notebooks for, Edmo says “I just put notes in all of them.”

Notebook Addict of the Week: AK

This week’s addict posted the photo below on Flickr, titled “All the Notebooks I Used in 2013”. Looks like Moleskine, Leuchtturm, Pukka Pads, and Pocket Dept, all nicely lined up and labeled. And displayed in a nice almost-rainbow of colors!

Notebook Addict of the Week: Nairobi Queen

The journals I have here with me in England

This week’s addict posted this photo on Flickr with these comments:

“The journals I have here with me in England

I have no idea where the rest of my books are, but here is a pretty good spread.”

From that, I deduce that she was just traveling to England or living there temporarily, and I was impressed that she brought so many notebooks with her! And she has more elsewhere… I’d love to see the whole collection! There are a few more notebooks and interior pages shown on her Flickr photostream.
