We’re happy to introduce the first episode of the Covered by Moleskine* series, from the New York leg of The Lost Lectures.
*A classic medium revisited: paper pages, digitally enhanced. On Covered by Moleskine, we send our visual correspondents to attend some of the most interesting events, conferences and festivals around the world, and document it on the ivory paper of the Moleskine notebook. They describe the people they meet, what they see, hear and feel through a combination of drawing and writing, then digitize to share.
The Lost Lectures bring a series of unique talks in secret, elusive locations revealed only a few days prior to the event. In the New York appointment, co-produced for the second year in a row by art zine Hyperallergic, speakers like writer Jon Ronson, filmmaker Josephine Decker or the band Blonde Redhead took turns at the podium, as visual journalist Lori Richmond live-reported the talks through her sketches and illustrations for Covered by Moleskine.
Her sketches were posted live on social, making Lost Lectures in New York probably the first secret event to be live-broadcast on a Moleskine notebook.
Since we don’t like showing up empty-handed, we printed an exclusive batch of Custom Edition notebooks dedicated to Lost Lectures, for the first 100 attendees to arrive. Needless to say, they were gone fairly quickly.
