More than a notebook – here are five creative Moleskine project ideas.
When it comes to notebooks, there are thousands to choose from – yet the Moleskine stands above the rest. Its name is inspired by the nickname given by legendary English writer Bruce Chatwin, and is rumoured to have been used by the likes of Van Gogh, Picasso and Ernest Hemingway, to name a few. Even in this digital age, the Moleskine has an ever-growing devoted fan base, all inspired by the history and culture of a small, black, leather-bound notebook. Sure, they’re great for taking notes and doodling – but more and more, people are using their Moleskines for full-scale projects. Feeling inspired? Here are a few ideas to get you started.
The One-Sentence-a-Day Diary
If you’re not much of a writer, keep a one-sentence-a-day diary. All it takes is a date and one short sentence to sum up what happened that day – next thing you know, you’ve got a story.
The Travel Journal
Use your Moleskine as an excuse to travel – showcase the places you go and the people you meet. Pssst – check out Lídia Gulyás’ Instagram for inspo.
The Optical Illusion
With just a notepad, a pen and a little bit of creativity – the possibilities are endless. Let your imagination run wild!
