The cult object goes into the next round: the academic calendar from Moleskine is a handy semester calendar. The Moleskine 18 Month Weekly Notebook pocket with black hard cover is dated from July to December. Formatted to show the week's appointments on the left and a ruled page for notes and ideas on the right, this popular planner style is perfect for students and professionals.
The Moleskine books can look back on a long tradition: Since nearly two centuries, the books serve creative heads, artists and thinkers like Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemmingway as important companions for their thoughts and concepts.
Originally, the notebooks were produced by a little French bookbinder who sold them to interested people in Paris. Back in these days, the books didn't even have an own name. Slowly but surely, they disappeared from the market because the producer shut down his business. In the 1980s the small black books were no longer available.
Soon afterwards, Bruce Chatwin talked about the story of his notebook in his book "The Songlines". He nicknamed it Moleskine. Moreover, Chatwin bought all books of this kind he could find afterwards. In 1998, a small Milan company took over Chatwin's idea and brought the books back onto the market - now known as the Moleskine notebooks.
In the meantime, the name Moleskine is a well-established brand. The books, calendars and notebooks accompany people all over the world.
