Essay: Moleskine Notes


"Impassioned, intellectual, harried, irreverent, creative." These are just a few of the words Moleskine users have used to describe themselves. With such a diversity of opinions and experiences we thought it might be interesting to see how you use your notebooks but more importantly, what you feel about writing and your art.

As part of our 2nd Anniversary celebrations (1.12.06 ) Moleskinerie is launching "Moleskine Notes", a series of essays by Moleskine users around the world starting next month. To be considered, write an essay (500-1000 words) on your Moleskine experience and email it to us. Put "MOLESKINE NOTES ENTRY" as subject. If chosen, you will receive a gift from Moleskinerie. We look forward to reading your story soon!

    I’m looking for an ESL teacher anywhere in the world to change moleskines with my students from Portugal, aged between 16 and 18. In case you are interested please write to

  7. I found a great Moleskine case at:

    Pretty paramilitary but looks great. I called the company that sells them and lo and behold the owner is a Moleskine nut and says the case holds an M perfectly.

    My name is Charles Ellis and I am a part time writer and artist.

  8. Thanks for the heads-up on that case Charles!
