The Moleskine notebook has a long history for over two centuries, and greatest people from history – Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin, were also a big fan of this small notebook.

A simple black rectangle with rounded corners, an elastic page-holder, and an internal expandable pocket: a nameless object with a spare perfection all its own, produced for over a century by a small French bookbinder that supplied the stationery shops of Paris, where the artistic and literary avant-gardes of the world browsed and bought them. A trusted and handy travel companion, the notebook held invaluable sketches, notes, stories, and ideas that would one day become famous paintings or the pages of beloved books.
