Books without words inside.


"Those us out there who use Moleskine, we do have an attachment to
them — in front of us stands a finite number of lines to trace the
circles of our own stories. A sense of ownership of the words written
within, even though the book itself is just another product in the
current of commerce and stream of marketing. That fact aside, there are
some elements about the book that make it the only option, at least for
now. (After all, Innovation is always close by.)

Some of those elements include: a pocket to collect the scraps of
experiences, and a hard cover that protects the pages from the elements
and travails of travel. It’s a sturdy thing, at least on the
construction side. Even when I’ve crammed the pocket full or ripped out
blank pages for quick notes and such, I find that the elastic-banded
pages get out there and back, with lines to spare for an address, a
number, or an anecdote (rarities in this era of “Let-Me-Get-Your-Number-In-My-Phone-So-I-Can-Scroll-Over-It-Every-Few-Days-Good-To-See-You-Again.”)…"

One thought on “Books without words inside.

  1. Well put. I put so many thoughts and ideas in my notebook. I’ve had mine since the beginnning of May and it’s nearly full. Some say it’s just a notebook, but they’re wrong, Moleskines have power. I can’t write on regular paper like I can in my Moleskine.
