The history of writing goes back to the dawn of humanity.
In the Stone Age, we carved crude images upon stone walls. Then the
Egyptians gave us papyrus, and in the Middle Ages we took up quill and
parchment to record our history. After centuries of pain-staking
handwritten work, the printing press bloomed as our main means of
production of written material.
Then, in the 19th and 20th centuries, French bookbinders created the first Moleskine.
These legendary notebooks have long been used by equally as legendary
thinkers, including Van Gogh, Picasso, Oscar Wilde, Ernest Hemmingway
and Bruce Chatwin (whom actually thought up the name “Moleskine”). Be
you a writer, a sketcher, a painter, or just a very busy individual,
you’ll find a Moleskine notebook to suit your needs, in a range of
fabulous colours, and true to their original form.
These stylish notebooks and diaries let you plan just about every aspect
of your life to perfection. And because they’re made by hand to the
most exact specifications, they look great and are tough enough to make
it through the year without falling to pieces.
Think of your Moleskine not as a mere object to keep track of important dates – think of it as a year-long companion.
