"For two centuries, Moleskine (mol-a-skeen'-a) has been the legendary notebook of artists, writers, intellectuals and travelers such as Henri Matisse (1869–1954), Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890), and the man who is considered to be the most influential writer of the last century, Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961).


"Despite the extraordinary tradition of Moleskine notebooks there was a pause in production in 1986. Writer-traveler Bruce Chatwin used to buy his moleskine at a Paris stationery shop in Rue de l'Ancienne Comédie, always stocking up before going on his infamous journeys. He gave his friend Luis Sepùlveda, a Chilean novelist, a precious moleskine before a trip to Patagonia. It was precious because by then the notebooks were no longer to be found, as the small family concern in Tours closed down. "Le vrai moleskine n’est plus" were the lapidary words of the stationer to Chatwin who had ordered one hundred before leaving for Australia. Now, the Moleskine tradition has been revived by Italian manufacturer Modo & Modo. It can go back to being a witness, passing from one pocket to another and continue the adventure."


I carry a Moleskine in my purse, and I have one at each of my workstations at home for times of unexpected inspiration. The pocket at the back of the book is handy for my coupons, notecards, stamps, shopping list and receipts.

This Moleskine Cahier journal has a heavy-duty Kraft (brown) cardboard cover with visible threaded side stitching on the spine. The paper is acid-free, has 80 plain pages, and the last 16 sheets are detachable.

If you can dream it, it can happen!
