Good shot. I saw a Moleskin jounal at BAM and thought of you. I couldn’t touch it because it was in a wrapper (and you know I wasn’t going to open it!) But I really wanted to feel the moleskin (is it really from a mole?)
Yep, real moles. Killed for the sole purpose of making journal covers. I think the meat is then used for stew.
Ok, the real truth, from moleskine:To be a trusted companion you need to be light and durable. The thread bound binding design of a Moleskine notebook allows it to open flat, allowing one to easily write or draw from one side to the other. The Moleskine thread-bound binding produces a very durable book, as compared to other less expensive bindings (such as perfect bound or glued bindings).Combining the thread bound binding with the unique oilcloth ‘moleskine’ textured cover, with leather-like strength, allows it to survive abuses that other notebooks would fear. Oilcloth is a term used to describe cloth or paper that is treated with a drying oil or synthetic resin. One familiar type of oilcloth is the sturdy the traditional gingham or tavern check oilcloth tablecloths used on picnic and outdoor tables. The Moleskine book cover is made with a rigid book board backing with a durable synthetic resin surface producing a textured faux-leather cover that is holds up under extreme conditions, which we believe often accompanies normal use.
…as opposed to moldskin, which is what it would be if it were left out on the porch at my mama’s lake house.I like your picture with the orange chairs.
