Moleskine notebooks have an oilcloth bound hardcover with rounded corners and an elastic closure. An expandable inner pocket made of cardboard and cloth contains the Moleskine history. The acid free paper pages are thread bound.
One of the major advantages of Moleskine over some other brands is that Moleskine notebooks open flat effortlessly and lie open flat of their own accord when in use. Another handy feature of the classic Moleskine notebooks is that they have a 'memory pocket' inside the back cover to store your little bits and pieces such as ticket stubs, photos, etc.
Thanks to the veritable PR geniuses over at Modo e Modo, the history of the Moleskine is now fact rather than mere anecdote. Claimed to be used by a plethora of creative geniuses including the great American writer and novelist, Ernest Hemingway, the Moleskine (or 'Hemingway Notebook' as one user affectionately refers to his), has transcended its origins as a mere notebook. Instead, for many, the Moleskine is itself a source of inspiration, nurturing creativity from within its creamy pages.
What do we think? Well, the Moleskine is not perfect, but there is something undeniably pleasing about the black oilcloth cover and cream pages of a Moleskine notebook. And there are plenty of combinations to choose from, each with its own characteristics. The Journal Shop keeps a healthy stock of Moleskines ready for dispatch within 24 hours, and our Moleskine prices offer unrivalled value for money on genuine Moleskine notebooks.
