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 Sketchbook-Moleskine-Large-Black Imitation?
Great for Field Jounals May 30, 2010
I bought this book to use for use in my environmental studies classes. I use a crappy notebook while out in the field and make sloppy notes then neatly transcribe all my notes and sketches into this book. The size is perfect, just right for making notes and decent sketches, while being portable. The pages are thick, I use a fine sharpie marker/pen and it doesn't bleed through. I love the unlined pages, it gives the appearance of those old school notebooks. The book is quality made. I have inspired the other students in my class and even my instructor to purchase this book.
Moleskine Notebook Feb 11, 2010
Fantastic little Moleskine sketchbook. Use it probably every day. Compact for convenient storage and travel, high-quality product. Definitely recommend.
A fantastic home for "the stuff of life" Feb 10, 2010
Expensive? Yes. Pretentious? Probably. Useful? Incredibly so. I use notebooks all the time to document thoughts, ideas, drawings, etc., and I've used any number of brands of these small, nicely bound notebooks. But, alas, none has quite compared to the Moleskine. The quality of the pages of this notebook is very high, and the stock is quite thick. Unlike many other brands of notebooks, ink doesn't tend to seep through to the other side with this, and the binding is also very strong, which is always a plus. Obviously, if you carry this thing around, you may appear to be quite the smug, self-important "d-bag"-- but given ultimately, I value the commitment of my ephemera to paper more than I value my money and social standing. You gotta have priorities.
Love it! Jan 28, 2010
These journals have the greatest feel to them. Feel like I'm touching a part of history. I've been painting in mine and sketching. The color is perfect for faces!
Could have been much better Dec 2, 2009
I always take a journal on any kind of trip and wanted heavy enough paper so that I could both write and draw and maybe use a watercolor pencil. I wanted something smaller in thickness than a 5.5 x 8.5 Strathmore sketchbook. The size of the Moleskine sketchbook is fine and the book opens fairly flat, but the paper is unusable.
The paper is more than "off-white" or "creamy white"; it's yellowish. I just can't write or draw on yellow paper! A sky blue watercolor pencil mark looked green. The texture is like the end-papers in other journals--thick and smooth to the point of impervious to certain inks.
Whatever happened to nice white paper with just enough thickness to make both sides usable?
