Moleskine presents a new notebook format for professionals with high demands regarding time- and idea-management. It is a planner as well as a notebook, and it offers a layout with the perfect organization for projects planning, notes and meeting/date management.
The Folio Business Notebook has a special page organisation for meetings: single areas for dates and timetables, specific side-notes and key-points as well as key actions and the following activities are well-arranged. A separate compartment for project planning, for to-do lists and an index makes planning easier and ensures that it will all be kept in mind by one only glimpse.
Separated tab and book-back-stickers enable the marking of especially important pages, to find them at first glance. The Moleskine Business Notebook has a hardcover and it is also available in an extra-large edition.
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 "Dream Paths". 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.
