View Full Version : anyone use Moleskin Notebooks?

02 February 2005, 06:35 AM
I guess this goes out to both the storyboard artists and writers out there. I know that a lot of writers use these to keep their thoughts, a buddy of mine turned me onto them and they are quite awesome in quality. I have discovered the Moleskin makes storyboard pocketbooks and am picking one up. I was wondering if any writers or storyboard artists use them? just curious i guess. It'll be nice during meetings with clients to doodle down in a collected place and then rework the boards on nice big storyboard templates.

Good to know that there are more people out there that use those little handy books that fit right in your pocket.

"My greatest fear is to come back in the afterlife as one."

Top ten (belated) improvements to Moleskine:*

1. centerfold girl with satyr and unicorn
2. dusting powder, sealing wax, moleskine stamp and
3. "In the event of my demise, I appoint ____ my executor to bequest this Moleskine to..."
4. "safety" match and kindling
5. absynthe-scented
6. two foot length of necklace chain with tassle
7. quill nib in back pocket
8. tiny hinged mail box flag that means "I'm available."
9. monocle, or goatee with spirit gum

moleskin books are great! I use one for for quick sketches and studies when I am wasting time. They're also handy for notes and stuff. The texture of the paper is what's really awsome though. I get pretty cool line quality even with a pen.

For me there's only one: UNDO ;)

Even though I'm very attracted to PDAs and those kind of gadgets, I prefer writing my thoughts, sketches, plans and to do lists with pen on paper. Same for addresses and appointments. Just feels nicer and is quicker. I couldn't live without my (moleskine) notebooks.

I always wanted one of these but I never knew where to get them. I have a thousand ideas every day but I forget a lot of them by the end of the day. Something like will be very handy!

I just bought the Moleskine Pocket Ruled Notebook, and I can't wait to receive it!

Thanks for the link guys.

my wife was going to buy one for me as a supprise (great wife!), but i accidently ruined the supprise when i was talking about making something simmilar.

see, i want a pad, that i can tear out pages to pin them to a board.
one frame to a page, please, and room for notes.

so, i look online, and lots of people mentioning something simmilar, but no shops selling them.

odd, lots of "any art supply store should have them." ehh..

these moleskin guys are also sold through Dick Blick art supplies, a few bucks cheaper.
