The legendary notebook of Hemmingway, Picasso and Chatwin.
Moleskine's notebooks look back on a long tradition: For nearly two centuries, the books have served creative people, artists and thinkers such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemingway as important companions for their thoughts and concepts.
The black books were originally produced by a small French bookbinder, who sold them to clients in Paris: the books didn't have their own name at this time. The producer stopped production in 1986 and the books disappeared.
Soon afterwards, Bruce Chatwin talked about the story of his notebook in his book "The Songlines" and gave it the nickname "Moleskine". Additionally, Chatwin bought all the editions of the small notebook that he could find. A small Milanese company took up Chatwin's thoughts in 1998 and officially brought the books back to the market under the name Moleskine. The rest is history...
Today, the name Moleskine is a well-established brand. The different books, calendars and notebooks appearing under this name accompany people during their day all over the world
Let your thoughts run free and immortalise them in your own Moleskine book, just as Vincent van Gogh, Ernest Hemingway, Oscar Wilde, Henri Matisse and many others already did.
