Moleskine

moleskine_1927_573933.gif I discovered Moleskine a couple years ago for myself when I travelled a bit more than lately (Talking about resolutions for 2007!) and someone gave me one as a present to take notes while I was on the road. I still have mine and it’s fun to read what I deemed interesting a while back or what I collected in the back pocket.

But what makes this Moleskine thing cooler than your average notepad is that cool people like my most favorite writer or the artists and used them as well.

Last but not least – to make this post Berlin related – is a note that Moleskine will come out with a city edition of their notebooks in 2007, and Berlin is in the game. Included in this specialty is a map of the city, zooms, blank pages (to takes notes!) and so on. I just saw it online but it looks pretty cool to have. Not just for the Berlin visitor but also for the Berliner.

Along with Berlin, Moleskine will release guides for Boston, New York, San Francisco, Washington, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Dublin, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Prague, Rome and Wien. And Chicago, Los Angeles, Montreal and Seattle in late 2007.

    i’ve heard it said, “don’t believe the hype.” surely you don’t? hemingway, matisse, etc. really? i find it far-fetched at best. try this:

    Far-fetched or not. If they used the same style book, why not use them?
    The book itself is pretty neat and comes in handy – that I know from personal experience since I collect many things over the course of the year.

    It’s pretty cool to review what you have done and where you have been. (This is the same reason why I like to take pictures and use plazes.) So if the book “helps” you/me with that, I find it useful. ;-)

    But yeah, I guess you are right in general. There is always hype to everything and one should not buy into it – totally.

    Just a few hints on putting a moleskin (or whatever notebook) to a more comfortable use ;)

    i purchased the berlin moleskine for myself and my boyfriend, and it seems like a really handy thing to have. it has maps of the entire city, both U and SBahn maps, tons of useful yellow pages-like information, and lots of blank pages for notes.
