Our friend Patrick Ng was at PaperWorld 2008 and posted about his trip:
Authentics showcased Moleskine’s 2008 new products in PaperWorld 2008. To help retailers to show more products in limited space, Modo e Modo will also release new ground and counter top spinners in order to accommodate all the new line-ups.
These brand new Moleskine Leather Cover Diaries are limited edition, something Modo e Modo haven’t done playing with nicer cover material for a few years now (check out the previous one I have here). They are "bound in patent Italian top quality leather. The shiny surface, in red and black, evokes the precious Eastern lakes, in honor of a great tradition that returns to life nowadays and brightens our daily acts", said in the catalog.
In addition to the new cover, the packaging is also very special and never seen before from Modo e Modo. It will be done similar to Japanese Furoshiki wrapping with a translucent paper banderole. The limited edition leather diaries are pocket size only with choice of red or black, IMHO the red one looks super nice. Each color has two versions to choose from: Daily or weekly horizontal.
Vola! The new Volant now comes in 3 sizes (extra small, pocket and large) and two types (ruled and plain), each package is a set of two color tones (black/black, lime/green, pink/pale pink, blue/deep blue). The quality of the cover improved a lot from previous version. The extra small version is particularly a good complement to any Moleskine acting as a notepad for quick or casual note taking…"
