A Moleskine notebook isn't just a notebook. It's a notebook of legendary proportions! For the past two centuries, Moleskine notebooks have recorded the ideas of some of Europe's greatest intellectuals. Van Gogh, Picasso, Earnest Hemingway, Bruce Chatwin and more.they all carried with them their trusty black Moleskine. All their thoughts, ideas, notes, sketches and stories - the iconic works of these great artists all found their first expression upon the pages of a Moleskine notebook. Originally, Moleskine notebooks were sold at a small Parisian stationary shop, frequented by the avant-garde. But as these great thinkers grew in fame, they began to travel. They - and naturally, their Moleskine notebooks travelled all over the world, and the word quickly spread. Pretty soon, people everywhere wanted a Moleskine. But, towards the end of the twentieth century, the Moleskine notebook was no longer available. But in 1998, the Moleskine name returned, when a small Milanese stationary shop brought these simple black notebooks back on the market. Now, once again, Moleskine notebooks are travelling the world.
