“I can not really put my finger on it, something about this great moleskine popularity explosion worries me. You know, there is this little product we love to use, and it is a very intimate little thing that we carry around in our pockets and suddenly… suddenly there are tombolas and weird connections made to the product. Some people are behaving as if the moleskines themselves were the carriers of creativity…It is as if you managed to walk a beautiful little trail and then you come back to look at it the next year and it is all paved and there are little theme restaurants along the way. Blinking signs…
Some things are best consumed in moderation. “
