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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Moleskine Plain Notebook Soft Cover XLarge?
Almost Perfect May 4, 2010
This Book I use for work, has the best cover I have seen in notebooks in the price range. It has all the features except a place to put a pen/pencils. Its always hard to find a balance with sturdy and flexibility this is close.
Put together well but paper too thin Oct 10, 2009
This notebook has many excellent features: a tough but flexible cover, rounded corners, smooth paper, a fabric bookmark, and an elastic closure.
However, I have to agree with another reviewer that the paper is very thin, so it is not practical to write on both the front and the back of a given sheet. Fountain pen ink and some kinds of gel ink show through strongly on the back of the page. Standard ballpoint does not show through (or only a little), but leaves imprinted tracks. I suppose one could paste clippings or photos on the back sides of the unused pages.
All things said, I plan to buy this notebook again when my present one is filled up. The solid construction and unobtrusive appearance have won me over. With less "inky" writing implements it is just fine.
Almost Perfect Mar 13, 2009
I really want to love these books, and I would if not for how thin the pages are. Before the Xlarge size came out, I had been using the Large for a couple years but had always thought the page dimensions were a little awkward to fill. These are the perfect size, and would be the perfect notebook in my opinion if the pages weren't so thin. I guess they are just trying to keep the profile thin as a whole, but you can see through not only to what is written on the back of a page, but what is written on the face of the next page.
Having stated this negative, it is the only one I have for this book. It has a soft cover, is plain and unobtrusive looking, and it comes with all the "accessories" I want in a journal: a ribbon bookmark, an attached elastic band to keep it closed, and a folder in the back to put extras in. It also has a good number of pages, and most important for me, comes in this unlined version.
So the book has thin pages but comes closer to perfection than any other notebook I've found. I think with some of us though, the very particular ones, the only way to obtain our idea of a perfect journal would be to make it ourselves. For those in this same demographic that are too lazy to do so, this Moleskine, for me at least, comes close enough.
Great evolution of a classic Feb 27, 2009
To me, the large hard bound plain moleskine is the classic. The softcover extra large is the natural evolution of the book. I really enjoy the extra landscape to write my thougts where I felt the large was just a tad small for true note taking.
Try it, the test alone is worth the money. It's a moleskine afterall...
