The Joy of Moleskin

For the last couple years I have not understood what the big woop about these books were until I recently bought one myself. Now I am completely hooked. I bought a Japanese pocket accordion notebook. It is 3.5 x 5.5 inches and unfolds into a long sheet.

The paper is awesome, smooth and heavy weight. It takes any medium wonderfully. I have been doing little fantasy drawings of plant and animal hybrids, inking them with a waterproof pen and coloring/painting them with watercolor pencils. I have now bought two more different types to try out. I originally thought these books were a little pricey, but these books are worth every penny. I want more, more more...
