Moleskine diaries are here
Friday, 18 August 2017 | Admin
All your favourites are here from the small, pocket-sized diaries, to large diaries more suited to your desk top and the Xlarge softback diary for people with a lot of appointments. There are page-a-day diaries and the traditional, horizontal-format diaries but the most popular design, pioneered a few years ago by Moleskine themselves, is their weekly notebook diary/planner. That's a bit of a mouthful but it means you get your seven-day week on the left-hand page and a ruled page opposite for any notes you need to make.
As well as Moleskine's classic black and red diaries, this year they're offering four sophisticated colours as well: sapphire blue, elm green, berry rose and maple yellow, the same colours that are available in their 18-month diaries that run from July 2017 to December 2018.
My favourite innovation this year is the stand-up desk calendar printed on the back of the belly-band. Once assembled there's a space for you to insert a pen or pencil. Every desk needs a year-at-a-glance to hand but, to be honest, you'll need pretty good eye-sight to use this little calendar.
In the front pages of the diaries there are the usual complete calendars for 2018 and 2019, but the item I find most useful is the month-to-a-page planner where I record car mileages, though I'm sure others have more interesting uses for these pages. There is a list of international holidays, a world map showing time zones, pages showing measures and conversions, international clothing sizes, international dialling codes, and a travel planning section. It gets even more interesting as Moleskine provide a page for your extraordinary moments of 2018, your blank space page and another world map for your inspiring journeys. At the back there are five lined pages for more notes, three sheets of stickers to highlight and personalise your diary and an inside inner pocket containing a brief history of the Moleskine notebook.
We've got the full range of Moleskine diaries in our shop and on our website now, along with a good number remaining of the 18-month diaries that double as academic diaries.
