Moleskin Notebook

Posted on February 06 2010

I listen to this radio show on the cbc called "The Age of Persuasion" by Terry O'Reilly. It's a great program explaining the evolution of marketing and commercials from the dawn of radio all the way to the present. It's very interesting in explaining how brands like youtube, nike, apple, etc. got to be where they are today. As I listened to an episode last night while painting those Tokyo Massacre canvases I was introduced to the Moleskin Notebook. I've never used one of these before but Mr. O'Reilly made it sound so interesting that I felt like I needed to do more research. This is what I found directly from their website:

"Moleskine (mol-a-skeen'-a) journals are truly legendary, possessing a minimalism, style and quality that literally has centuries of experience. To the initiated, there is no substitute. Moleskine journals - and rest assured, they're not made from the skin of a mole - are the legendary notebooks used by artists and intellectuals who defined 20th century culture, including such luminaries as Hemingway, Van Gogh, and Matisse.

Today they are seen absorbing stories on trails and mountains journaling adventures; recording data at engineering sites; at coffee shops soaking up ideas and capturing artistic designs; at hospitals recording procedures, on planes keeping track of what has and is to happen - - in all cases being a trusted traveling companion."


Upon more research I found that these idea journals could be customized. I'm going to look into this but I'd like to know if any of you would be interested in getting some custom Akumu Ink styled Moleskin notebooks made?
