Moleskine is a high-end and premium brand of notebooks which has a cult following here in the Philippines. According to their website, Moleskine is the heir and successor to the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers like Van Gogh, Picasso, and Hemingway. The notebook has a very simple, classic, and elegant design: black rectangle with rounded corners, an elastic page-holder, and an expandable inner back cover pocket.
Today Moleskine has a wide range of products but their most famous one is still the simple black notebook. It’s pricey and there are a lot of imitations so not everyone will actually buy one. The standard ruled notebook costs Php 1,199. It’s available in most National Bookstore branches.
