My First Moleskine September 8, 2012

Posted by The Typist in books, New Orleans, Odd Words, Toulouse Street.

The first full entry in my new Moleskine, kind gift of a dear friend. The Moleskine is the recreation of handmade notebooks made by 19th and 20th century bookbinders in Paris.

nice…just before Christmas, moleskeine released a “star wars” edition. bought them for my boys. I hope they use them, in spite of their dependence on all things android.

I saw that on the web page. (Mine was a gift, but I went looking for a bit of history about the Moleskines.) At first I thought that a disappointing step toward the commercialization of the product, akin to putting Princess Leia’s face on the Mona Lisa, but the more I think about it anything that encourages kids to write, on their own and without assignment, on a page and not a keyboard, can’t be a bad thing.

my now 18yo uses his to make notes while playing videogames…it’s a start 🙂

These are terrific notebooks. The partner in crime gave me my first one as a gift. I couldn’t figure out what I could do with it that was worthy of it. Then we had a conference in the French Caribbean. The conference was many days and was held in a typical tropical meeting place open to the air at the top and lots of other places, as well as ceiling fans — but no a/c. It was humid. I took pages and pages and pages of notes of the brilliant and always interesting presentations and panel discussions. My fingers got sweaty, as did my pen. The pages in the moleskine got damp, but the ink never ran and the pages never curled up. Then I figured out why they are such a good deal.

We’ve both been using them ever since. We particularly like the unlined flip top journalism ones — not the long ones, but those short enough to fit in a pocket.

Love, C.
