Memories of light and waves...

One of my favorite little treasures is the Moleskine notebook. There's something about them that instantly makes everything written in them feel more magical and alive than ever. The reason is perhaps that it is a legandary notebook, which in the past was used by some of the most well-known 'European artists and thinkers from the past two centuries, from Van Gogh to Picasso, from Ernest Hemingway to Bruce Chatwin'. The essence of greatness is somehow so apparent in the cream colored pages and the leather covers. One can not help but think about the sketches, the notes, the stories and ideas that were once captured on similiar pages, to later become "famous images and beloved books." I own several of them myself, and my collection seems to always be growing. Read more about them at
