Convenient size, colorful design and inexpressible charm make Moleskine the brand for artistic people. Van Gough, Sartr, Oscar Wilde and Anrie Matisse used such notebooks. The modern leather notebook with a fastener appeared around 20 years ago when Bruce Chatwin proclaimed that one became a writer by writing not typing.
A notebook becomes a friend as soon as one writes his name down on the first page. Should one need to write down an idea, make a sketch or an airplane out of the paper page torn from the notebook, one can always rely on Moleskine in the handbag. If Hemingway said the Paris was a holiday, then one could say that Moleskine is a true friend that never lets you down.
A new limited edition Moleskin Hermitage portrays fragments of the most famous masterpieces from the Hermitage Collection such as Paul Gauguin’s "Sacred Spring (Nave Nave Moe)". The cover page shows the fragment of the picture and a quote of the painter.
