One cool thing I picked up in NYC – in a couple of stationery stores on Madison Ave, to be precise – was a couple of these. Ever since the relaunching of the "brand" in 1998, the little "Moleskine" notebooks – highly portable, beautifully designed, & eminently fetishizable – seem to have become scribble-fodder of choice for lots & lots of people. Me, I've been using them for five or six years, & will be for the foreseeable future, since I invested in a big lot of them on eBay a month or so back.
But there's nothing quite as fetishizable as these Van Gogh Museum specials, with their eye-popping, rich colors & their wonderful silk textures. I even bought a little sketchbook – which means that I'll have to start drawing again!
