The Moleskine notebook is the heir and successor to the legendary notebooks used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and Bruce Chatwin. A simple black rectangle that held the sketches, notes, stories and ideas that would one day become famous paintings or the pages of beloved books. In the mid-1980s the notebook that Bruce Chatwin nicknamed ‘moleskine’ became increasingly scarce and then disappeared completely. In 1997, a small Milanese publisher brought the legendary notebook back to life, choosing this literary name to revive an extraordinary tradition of creativity and self-expression for the contemporary creatives of our time.
