I’m just curious, how (and when) did you all first discover the moleskine?

I discovered it because of Flickr, because of the "What’s In Your Bag?" photo pool. I love surfing that photo pool and I kept seeing Moleskines repeated over and over in so many people’s bags. I’m like "what’s the big deal?" and read up on them. Next thing I know I’m "jumping on the bandwagon" and I may be a latecomer to the trend but I am SO glad I found Moleskines. Because of this handy little book I’m drawing and writing more than I ever have. :)

What about you guys? How/when did you discover it?

I discovered them five years ago in a bookstore by chance. I had no idea of the Moleskine "legend" i just liked it, the size, the leather cover, the paper, the pocket and the elastic band, everything!
I had been looking for the perfect notebook for many years and i had finally found it…so i bought one! and i have been using them since then. It’s a long-term relationship :)

I also remember that they were really hard to find then. I guess now it’s easier to buy them and i don’t have to spend a lot of time searching in stores, but the difficulties made my Moleskines more "precious" in some way :) )

I saw moleskines set out in Waterstones the bookstore.
I was drawn to the display initially by the coloured bands around them.
Bought the ruled notebook, and then the squared.
Use the ruled as a daily diary of thoughts, and the squared as a daily planner and for writing down
other thoughts that choose to jump into my head.
I am now a moleskine junkie.
It’s official.

a handsome southern boy with a dimple in his chin told me about them, and showed me the pocket in the back.
