Last year I wrote a post about my love affair with notebooks. I did not mention moleskins then, so here comes a post totally dedicated to my moleskins.
Five years ago I spent two weeks in New York as an observator during the UN General Assembly. I stayed in NY all alone, and beside following meetings in the UN building, I had alot of time free to explore the metropol.Many, many hours were spent in bookstores, for example I stared every day with breakfast at a Borders. And during one of these mornings I found my first moleskin. It took me about five seconds to be hooked. And since then I have always had at least one moleskin in my purse.
They are perfect for "everything". For addresses, phone numbers, quatations, a message I musn't forget, good ideas......you name it. The other day I read Ilva's blog, and in one comment Merisi mentions a spesific church in Rome. This information is now written down in my moleskin, and I will have it handy when we are in Rome in July.
Yesterday I bought a new moleskin, extending my collection. This one will be my Venice sketch book, and the first page is already made. Why is it that a plain book can make the best out of us?
Do you have a moleskin story to share?
