Moleskine City Notebook

High-quality materials combined with the cultural cache that come from knowing you are using the same notebook which once held the musings of Van Gogh, Picasso, and Ernest Hemingway have made Moleskine the preferred notebooks of artists and thinkers for the past two centuries. With the launch of the new City Notebook, Moleskine is giving travelers the opportunity to write their own guides.

Featuring a map of the greater area as well as smaller detail maps, a metro map and station index, a filing system for food, people, and places, 48 adhesive labels for personalizing, detachable sheets for quick messages, and tri-color ribbon bookmarks the City Notebook is a way to explore a place you're just getting to know or to catalog a place you already love. Our favorite feature is the stick-on translucent overlays which make it easy to trace your own path along the maps or to design a custon walking tour. Held secure by the standard elastic closure and sewn bindings, sturdy construction makes Moleskine notebooks steadfast travel companions—not to mention that the classic nondescript black cover doesn't scream "tourist."

Launching this October in London the City Notebooks will be available for Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Dublin, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Prague, Rome, and Vienna, with books for Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, New York and San Francisco slated for 2007.
