To some, a notebook is a purely utilitarian instrument chosen out of necessity, without considering such attributes as style, construction or soul. These people are missing out.
Without going off course too much, I present Moleskine notebooks. Many of you are already familiar with the company, but I’ll add their mission statement below because in my humble opinion it’s well written and curiously intriguing.
“Moleskine is a brand that encompasses a family of nomadic objects: notebooks, diaries, journals, bags, writing instruments and reading accessories, dedicated to our mobile identity. Flexible and brilliantly simple tools for use both in everyday and extraordinary circumstances, ultimately becoming an integral part of our personality.”
I bought my first Moleskine daily planner last year and it became a trusted resource that rarely left my side. Some may say it’s becoming antiquated to use pencil and paper to write down appointments, but I say nay. There are certain things that should never die: chivalry, hard back books and writing down appointments.
I’m still on the hunt for my 2011 daily planner, who would’ve thought that finding a new daily planner would become such a difficult task just a few days into the new year… go figure.
