Moleskine DC Book

moleskinecity.pngI love my Moleskine notebooks. I use one for client notes, one for class notes, and hell, even one for pubquiz. The hardbound cover, the ribbon for keeping your place, the eminently touchable page, it’s a paper-fanatic’s dream. What’s this got to do with DC? Well, Moleskine has announced City Notebooks, featuring maps and metro directions, they’ll be available in the Spring. Want to start a restaurant guide to keep around the house for when friends visit? Perfect. Want to give your tourist freeloader friends a good guide to town in your own hand? Perfect.

At $24, it’s not an instant buy, but when you think of the possibilities….oh, sign me up for five or six!

    I bought the London version last week – happy to show it to you. Pretty cool – but definitely a real committment to long-term record keeping.

    The $24 pricetag doesn’t seem all that outrageous for a Modo & Modo Moleskine with all the maps and other features.

    Depending on what you’re looking for, the Not For Tourists Guide might be more appropriate. It’s already got a ton of info on restaurants, monuments, transportation, etc. I’m also a big fan of the Moleskine, but it sounds like the City book pretty much only comes with maps.

    If you’re interested in just having a cookie cutter (albeit a good cookie cutter) guide, then NFT is pretty solid, but I think the Moleskine lets you create your OWN content for your friends to see.

    Pretty neat, though I wish it was in the reporter layout. I keep mine in by back pocket for notes-on-the-go and writing on a book style without a flat surface to rest it on is way easier with the vertical flip.

    I second Don’s request. The vertical style is also better for left-handed people because you don’t have to rest your hand on the center while you’re trying to write on a new page. All my notebooks are vertical style for that reason.
