Moleskine notebooks, comparison.
The Moleskine Notebook
Classic Ruled, Plain Reporter, Storyboard, Watercolour and the Sketchbook.
Buying online or sealed item in store, its difficult to compare the different qualities of the classic moleskine's. Here's a guide from my personal art supplies
MOLESKINE CLASSIC RULED NOTEBOOK (pictured above)
The classic ruled notebook with fine, delicate, semi transparent paper. The leaves are a warm buttery white and lines are subtle. (pictures above)
MOLESKINE PLAIN REPORTER NOTEBOOK
The plain reporter moleskine, has the same buttery coloured, fine, semi transparent paper stock. The reporter notebook is bound on the shorter edge. So the plain (unlined) reporter can be used as a landscape notebook. I use this as a sketchbook, as I like the delicacy of the paper to draw on. (pictured above)
MOLESKINE CLASSIC SKETCHBOOK (pictured above)
The Moleskine sketchbook has a thick weighted, buttery white paper stock. The thick page allows for inks and colour via light watercolour, marker or pencils to be added without buckling paper or transparency, allowing both sides of paper to be used.
MOLESKINE CLASSIC STORYBOARD (pictured above)
The Moleskine storyboard has the same thick weighted, buttery white paper stock as the sketchbook. The pages have three equal sized squares on the outer edge of the page, this allows for either a movement through a story or a variety of composition/colour options for a single painting.
MOLESKINE WATERCOLOUR NOTEBOOK (pictured above)
The Moleskine watercolour notebook has medium weight, white, textured watercolour paper. The watercolour notebook is available bound on the short edge or the longer edge - portrait or landscape.
I hope this inspires to start your own creative journalling ...
