Boy, for a pencil blog, I sure do cover paper a lot. But what, after all, is a pencil without paper to write on? It’s just a stick of wood.
Besides Rhodia and Field Notes, one of my favorite things to write on is a Moleskine notebook. Like John at Pencil Revolution, I get a little suspicious of some of the claims Moleskine makes about being the preferred notebook of literary and artistic figures throughout the centuries. However, like John, I still use them. Until recently when I switched to iCal, I was using a really great weekly planner and notebook made by Moleskine. Their pages aren’t as creamy as Rhodia, but they are thick, sturdy, and hold graphite markings as well as drink up fountain pen ink like a pro.
That’s why I was excited to see this:
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the video-game Pac-Man, Moleskine has released a 5-piece edition, featuring featuring “pocket and large hard cover notebooks, both plain and ruled, and a colorful set of 4 large Volant soft cover notebooks in celebrative packaging.” Each notebook has beautiful 8-bit cover art from the video game and mini-stickers. How fun is that?
