More About Moleskine

Moleskine Moleskine was created as a brand in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin.

A trusted and handy travel companion, the nameless black notebook held invaluable sketches, notes, stories, and ideas that would one day become famous paintings or the pages of beloved books. Today, the name Moleskine encompasses a family of nomadic objects: notebooks, diaries, journals, bags, writing instruments and reading accessories, dedicated to our mobile identity. Indispensable companions to the creative professions and the imagination of our times: they are intimately tied to the digital world.

Since January 2007, Moleskine has also become the name of the company that owns the worldwide trademark rights for the brand. Moleskine SpA creates, produces, and distributes not only the well-known notebooks and their various offshoots, but also a series of objects for the creativity of the contemporary nomad. The company grew out of the experience of Modo&Modo, a small Milanese publisher that in 1997 created the Moleskine trademark, rediscovering and renewing an extraordinary tradition. In the fall of 2006, Modo&Modo was purchased by SGCapital Europe, now Syntegra Capital, with the objective of fully developing the potential of the Moleskine brand.

Moleskine SpA is a small and creative company enjoying continuing growth. It now has about one hundred employees and a vast network of partners and consultants. Its home office is in Milan, Italy. Its affiliates are Moleskine America, Inc, with offices in New York, established in early 2008, and Moleskine Asia, Ltd, with offices in Hong Kong, established in late 2011.

Reviews - What do customers think about Moleskine Japanese Album Pocket?

my best travel journal  Feb 7, 2010
i love these for my short trips. good sturdy paper, perfect for sticking little receipts or whatnot to.
Different kind of notebook  Dec 31, 2009
The Moleskine Japanese Album is a different kind of note book. I love it, it takes some time to get used to it but after I did it was awesome. Now my notes doodles and other ideas flow together since its one long sheet. You almost feel like a ninja unfolding out this giant scroll. Very cool.
Great product, helps with creativity  Apr 18, 2009
Wanted to try out this moleskine. I was not disappointed. It really helps with creative thoughts and work. Pages are durable and love the fact that you can expand the pages out.
I love this format of Moleskine  Feb 11, 2009
The accordion folds make it perfect for larger sketches and uninterrupted flow of words. The only drawback to this is that it's quite a bit more difficult to have this notebook be universally portable; you need to be able to hold the pages out and steady if you're going to use more than one page at a time. Other than that, I love the option of having a giant work in the notebook that's three pages wide or long or tall. It makes for a beautiful display as well.

The pages are premium and acid-free, holds ink well (sharpies/permanent ink will and can bleed through), and are perfect for drawing, writing, collages, etc. Even though the Moleskine brand gets a lot of crap ([...]), they still make a great notebook.
it's very nice, but small  Jan 19, 2009
I never bought a moleskine before but I saw this design they had for a sketchbook and it looked interesting enough to try out. The paper is nice, though when it says 60 pages that is really assuming you are not going to be drawing on the last 30 pages (the back side of the accordion), and will instead be scrapbooking/gluing things to it, etc. Here is why:

The pages are made up of 3 'chunks' of long, accordion-folded moleskine drawing paper: about 1/2 an inch of the next is glued to the back of the previous one to connect them together. This is not cheap looking or bad quality at all, mind you, it won't fall apart (I haven't used any wet media on it though) but just a warning if you plan on drawing on the back side to save money & space.. every 10 pages or so there will be a 1/2 inch second layer of paper on the edge (from where the next part is glued on). However, this is a matter of opinion--my goal of writing this is just to bring this to the attention of potential buyers.

Another thing to note is that you can pull out the length of the sketchbook (thus the 60 pages--30 on one side, 30 on the other). Hopefully this clears up my description of the paper assemblage.. And unless you are only holding the front cover of the book, it won't all fall out while you are drawing.

The elastic band to hold the book closed is durable, and it's not made too loose or too tight.

The only other thing that may bother people is the size. I only wish there were a larger size available; 3x5 is nice for little daily doodles and such but for those with larger scale ideas it's too small. They don't seem to have a bigger version and I haven't found any other brands that use this japanese folding style for a sketchbook. (If anyone knows of one please let me know!)

And so, besides the "Japanese Album" design of this moleskine it is just a regular hardcover blank journal with the elastic band to hold it closed (something that is found on other journals/sketchbooks). For me it just happened to suit my needs of a small daily art journal.
