a notebook cult

Audrey Tatou’s Amelie, and her Moleskine notebook [source]

excerpt:

For two centuries now Moleskine (mol-a-skeen’-a) has been the legendary notebook of artists, writers, intellectuals and travelers. From gifted artists Henri Matisse (1869–1954) and Vincent van Gogh (1875–1900), to poet and leader of the surrealist movement André Breton (1896-1966) to Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) considered the most influential writer of the last century, to famous travel writer Bruce Chatwin (1940-1989).

These notebooks have proven they can withstand the trials of travel and abuses that ensues from normal use. This is the one true trusted travel journal. [source]

interesting. $7.95 for a plain pocket notebook? the novelty of the whole thing is enticing, but i think i’d be able to bring out the same output with one of those security guard, ‘hardbound‘ logbooks.
