A little while ago, I posted about Moleskine notebooks, and noted in the comments section that what I really needed was a Moleskine that wasn't a Moleskine -- I didn't care about using the same notebook as Hemingway, but I did want something with a lay-flat sewn binding, little elastic strap, pocket in the back, and so forth.

I have found the Moleskine which is not a Moleskine, and it is Cavallini. Made in Italy for a San Francisco importer, they've got trade-paperback-on-card covers with interesting designs (mine has a Japanese tsunami print), a glued (not sewn) lay-flat binding, elastic strap, a pocket in the back, and about 250 pages of very writeable offwhite brown-lined paper. My 8x6" cost about US $10. Perfect compromise.


  • Birthday report!

    So I got a year younger today. Somehow, earlier this year I'd completely convinced myself that I was 35, I think because all of the post-MBA stuff…

  • Burger cupcakes?

    No, those are not burger cupcakes.

  • I baked bread

    Yay me, I baked bread from scratch! I'm not sure exactly why, but I always considered baking bread from scratch to be beyond my kitchen…
