The Classic Moleskine is back - with Flash!
Are you like many, trying to simplify your life and get more organized - all the while - not spending loads of money? While in Barnes & Noble recently I noticed these cute Moleskines ( mol-a-skeen'-a) the other day. Moleskine is the legendary notebook that has been used to capture thoughts, dreams and sketches by such great artists and writers as Van Gogh, Picasso and Ernest Hemingway. Originally a small French bookbinder supplied these books to Parisian bookshops frequented by the international avant-garde. However in 1986, the last manufacturer of Moleskines, a family operation of Tours, closed the doors. Thankfully in 1998 a small Milianese publisher brought them back for the world to use not only to organize but to hold drawings and dreams. The set I purchased contained two books of coordinating colors. These are perfect to pop in your purse or briefcase and let's all face it - sometimes paper is just easier and more convenient than your blackberry or iphone. Offering acid-free paper with 56 detachable pages.
Price of this Tygr Luxe Item - 2 books - $5.95.
