I'm a fan of Moleskine notebooks. Not because they are trendy , but because, in my opinion, they represent something of a traditional value, a world that is slowly starting to disappear, a world without computers, iPads, iPods, cell phones, where every artist (painter, writer, etc...) carried with him a pen and  his little black notebook, invaluable source of his own ideas, flashes of inspiration, vague sketches that will later become masterpieces, memories and thoughts...

On their website I read : "Moleskine® was created as a brand in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin."

So I thought , isn't it beautiful in these days of consumerism, to create a product which is "to be kept and treasured, made of the thoughts and feelings of its owner." (according to Moleskine's philosophy).

And it's not made of diamonds, gold, pearls, but of sheets of blank paper between black covers. And although it's not expensive, because of its content , becomes priceless.
