Little black books

One can never have enough little notebooks... I love the little pile of agenda's and notebooks on my desk. And especially love -apparently we Dutch all do- the little black Moleskine books. I have several moleskine notebooks and planners and the thing I like most about them is that they all come with an elastic band so you can stuff lots of cards, notes and pictures in between them.

There are some special notebooks for the main city's too.... I have one from Paris where I write places or shops I want to visit in. The little brown books I bought in Paris at the Muji store the little one has such a great shape and hundreds of little pages.


And do you remember my Whats that in your studio post with those graphic cards from Therese Sennerholt. There now is a new set of 3 notebooks available in the webshop / Op de foto boven de nieuwe set van 3 notebooks van Therese Sennerholt.

And if you are looking for something really different and handmade you should have a look at the work of my friend and Praha based artist Kucin! His work was recently mentioned in the Financial times and he makes unique pieces of diary's, sketchbooks, photobooks and lots of different notebooks.... read his blog and visit his site at deafmessanger.com / Voor unieke handgemaakte notebookes en agenda's bezoek je de site van mijn vriend en in Praag wonende artiest Kucin!


Ik ben gek op dat stapeltje kleine zwarte boekjes en agenda's op mijn bureau. Vooral  de kleine zwarte Moleskine boekjes heb ik in allerlei soorten en maten. Het elastieken bandje om de agenda's vind ik geweldig, je kunt er van alles tussen proppen en in bewaren. Er zijn ook verschillende notebooks van de grote steden... Ik heb er een van Parijs en schrijf er adressen in van dingen die ik wil bezoeken of niet wil vergeten.  De bruine boekjes op onderstaande foto kocht ik in Parijs in de Muji store,
