My love for Moleskine knows no limit. I love them purely for how simple, classic, and consistent they are. And the paper, oh my, the paper. It fits the way I write and draw perfectly. So smooth, and just the perfect shade of off-white.
While unpacking and repacking, and purging, and trying to get settled, I had a good look at my little Moleskine collection. I love every single notebook. I have many unfinished ones because I just couldn’t start a new project in a Moleskine meant for another purpose. Some pages are completely plain, and some of them I’ve copied another drawing for practice, but every single page is mine. Every page brings me right back to the moment I was drawing or writing on it. There are so many memories in my Moleskines, including the night that I met my husband… even though it was completely insignificant on that day.
I’ve thrown away so many of these books (shock horror), and torn out countless pages, and oh how I wish I hadn’t. Never again.
I’d like to introduce you to my collection…
It used to be purely black until I realised that I couldn’t afford my habit, and went over to the kraft cahiers. While the notebooks have changed, it’s pretty clear that I have a type when it comes to size. I want to get these organised this month when we get our new shelves (the current ones are overflowing).
At least I’ve organised my binders right ?
For drawing and writing.
For more personal writing.
For wine (my only one of the Passions range)
And my very first Moleskine agenda.
And that’s it for this week. I’ll share a bit of their insides next Wednesday. Just thought you guys should say hi.
