Born and Raised x Moleskine Notebooks
This project with Moleskine has been in the works for almost a year. We met over several months to conceptualize the project, finally settling on two very different styles. The one and only David Smith, who illustrated the Born and Raised album cover (and much more), created the artwork specifically for these books.
Each notebook has David’s art debossed on the cover. Inside is a silkscreened inscription from “Face to Call Home” and hand-numbering from an edition of 500. The Pocket Journal in the Writing Set has the “B&R” monogram debossed on the cover.
I’m in love with the brand new Writing Set: the exterior is a box that matches the look of a Moleskine notebook, but opens up to reveal a Pocket Notebook and Moleskine pen.
And – the A4 is my notebook of choice – I roll around with 2 of them at all times (business and pleasure). It’s a big’un (12” x 8.5”) – great for notes, sketching, cutting and pasting, whatever you like.
The photos above are only graphic representations of the real thing – can’t wait to get my hands on a few and show you more details.
