If there are two things that no designer should ever be without, it’s those squarish Lucite-rimmed glasses and a weathered, dog-eared Moleskine notebook, preferably the Plain Reporter Notebook kind, which we especially love because the pages are bound on top.

Mimi Sells waxes exceptionally poetic in her essay about the Moleskine, which has a rich European legacy that goes back a good century or two. She also directs us to the official Moleskine blog, Moleskinerie and the killer Wandering Moleskine Project.
