As of 06 December 2006, this project has been suspended because despite several attempts we are unable to trace the notebooks anymore. Our deepest regrets.
We are happy to announce
the re-launching of the "Wandering Moleskine Project II" @ Moleskinerie.
Several notebooks will be sent on their way from various points around the
world, and scans of pages will be posted as they are filled.
We are happy to announce
To join, please email your
name and postal address to Joy Rothke [jrothke AT gmail DOT com]. Names will be
added in the order they are received.
-Participants are entitled
to use one page of each notebook and to send it on to the next recipient
within one week of receiving it. An official routing list will be posted and regularly updated to indicate the origin, current location and next destination of each notebook.
-When you are ready to mail
your notebook to the next recipient, contact Joy for their postal address. Please
use Air Mail or US First Class mail or your country’s equivalent. This is

recipient faster, it will help to safeguard the notebook from getting lost in
bins of Parcel Post or Media Mail packages that can take weeks or more to
arrive. To protect the notebooks from inclement weather, please mail seal them
in the waterproof bags in which they were sent.
-You are free to write/draw
whatever you desire, provided your entry does not deface or alter the notebook
or others’ entries.
-Remember, this project is
for posterity’s sake, and the notebook has to survive through multiple treks
across the globe. Please refrain from excessive gluing, and please use
acid-free/archival-safe materials when possible.
-Please scan your entry (300 DPI) and

libraries, copy shops and some post offices have scanners that can be used for
free or for a nominal cost.
