Customer Review

on December 12, 2010
I own 15 Moleskine journals, mostly sketchbooks before, but wanted to give this watercolor book a try. At first I was reluctant because of the landscape format, but after a few pages I grew to appreciate the layout and now I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm a lefty who crooks his wrist to avoid smudging and I rarely run into smears as long as I give the page a couple of minutes to dry. This journal is the perfect size for illustrated journalists who like to throw their pens, watercolors and books into their daypack and go out and find things to document in life. The pages are heavy and durable enough to withstand several layers of watercolor. The paper dries quickly, so you can go back and add more watercolor as often as you like. There is only minimal page warp, but the elastic band is usually enough to aid in flattening the pages back to shape. This is hardly an issue though. I use watercolor and pen when I journal and the paper stands up to some grueling tests. Only once have I had a page come loose. My Moleskines have been dropped from Nepalese buses, fallen out of rickshaws in India and doused with rain in Indonesia. They're still intact, only occasionally scuffed up, and haven't lost any of their character. I love these books and can't imagine using anything else. Once a Moleskine enthusiast, always a Moleskine enthusiast!
