Bookmark – inspired by Moleskine

Posted by jerry on May 13th, 2006 — Posted in Journal, Writing

As I prepare to head off on another adventure, the first stop is of course, to Pepe’s Paperie for a new Moleskine notebook – the squared paper being my preference. Now, one of the great design features of the Moleskine is the elastic strap which keeps the book closed – preventing all those wonderful ideas from falling out!

As I took the Moleskine to the counter, Sharon noticed a stand of bookmarks and saw at once the key thing that set these bookmarks apart from any other – yes, an elastic strap which would hold the book closed (and the bookmark in place) – just like a Moleskine πŸ™‚


And here it is in use with the book I am currently reading


And yes that is my latest pen – the Visconti ‘Van Gogh’ fountain pen – now with a fine nib – which works perfectly on moleskine paper.

And the moleskine, the pen and the bookmark were Sharon’s gifts to meΒ  – now that’s special πŸ™‚

That’s really cool. I’m going to go right out and look for a bookmark like that. Can you provide more info (like manufacturer, etc.) in case I can’t find one?
