That Legendary Notebook

Posted by Janet on August 21, 2008

Yes. That one. Moleskine.

Honestly I don’t understand the hype around this notebook. After all it’s bound paper. Functionally it’s the same as any paper you write on. I personally prefer loose paper so I can rearrange the pages anyway.

I suppose Moleskine is so highly regarded among artists because what other brand of notebook devotes its pages to artists? It’s hard enough finding a normal blank page notebook, not to mention acid free pages that are ruled for musicians or have frames already drawn for storyboard.

This is probably why a blog is completely devoted to all things Moleskine. From accessories to storage to people’s stories and their sketch pages.

    It’s a nicely made little notebook, and some people find it aesthetically pleasing (and some people are just snobs about it 🙂 but I think a big part of the appeal is the community that’s grown up between people who use them – moleskine sketchbook exchanges, etc.

    Only a notebook lover would understand, and you’re a loose leaf gal! 😉 There is a hype around notebooks as writing in book form is something very special… 🙂

    bye for now!
