More About 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.

Great staple for note-taking Jan 22, 2010
I've been using moleskine notebooks off and on for years but have fallen in love with the softcovers. They are malleable, great quality and can take a lot of abuse. I carry one with me at all times. I highly recommend them!
Great concept. Short on the execution Dec 2, 2009
I've been searching high and low for the ideal sketchbook and read rave reviews about the Moleskin notebook so went ahead an purchased one. I did take into account peoples comments of the paper and it's lack of diversity to different medium but thought it was subjective. Fast forward, the cover material is great and seems durable, the place holder and elastic band also a plus as well as the pocket in the back. But her'e my biggest pet peeve, the paper. It's very smooth and very transparent. I made a few pencil drawings with an HB pencil and it wasn't too bad but forget about using an ink pen (Uniball, Rolling Ball, etc). Although the paper does absorb it well you can see the artwork and words on the other side even when no light is shinning through.
Also, the paper seems to fall short for using anything other than a pencil and soft strokes. I've had dozens of sketchbooks and the paper was always diverse enough to take different mediums with no problem. Again my biggest issue is the transparency and feel of the paper. It lacks a certain "roughness" you're used to seeing in sketchbooks so I would suffice to say that this is not a sketchbook but more like journal. The most comparable illustration I can give is that it feels and writes like regular notebook ruled paper but it's a solid manila color.
That said, there are various comments that the "sketchbook" version of this notebook has paper similar to the cover stock like the first inside page of the notebook where it says "this book belongs to"... Unfortunately, the watercolor alternative is no good either becuase 1. It's only available hardcover, 2. It's in a horizontal format and 3. It has about 1/2 the pages of the notebook.
Alas, my search continues. Ideally, Moleskin would produce a version of this with a lighter watercolor paper, in a vertical format, with a soft cover and add pages. If they did that I'd by it by the case.
Makes Me Want To Write Something Jun 2, 2009
I mistakenly purchased this from Barnes&Noble on impulse instead of buying it from here, got stiffed for a few extra bucks.
This is a great notebook to jot down your thoughts or for any writing purpose, great flexible leather cover, and soft acid-free paper, also its book bound (?) so it lays flat on what ever page you are on. I highly recommend it, although it will not make you a Steven King.
perfect notebook Jan 27, 2009

Excellent Product Nov 25, 2008
The Moleskine Notebooks are excellent. Our eldest son gave my husband his first one. He is a writer and since discovering Moleskine notebooks his collection is steadily growing. Recommended to any person who enjoys quality for their writing.
