Moleskine City Notebook, The first guide you write yourself.
Moleskine, the heir of the legendary notebook of Hemingway, Picasso and Chatwin, has developed a completely new concept for city travelers, the City Notebook.
The City Notebook is a guide you write yourself, tracing your own personal map of the city. It reflects your personal sense of place, and your unique city experiences. It contains all your personal information; it incorporates your interests, your itineraries, your reference points, and your personal aesthetic.
' For every traveler who has any taste of his own,
the only useful guidebook will be the one
which he himself has written.'
The City Notebook is easy to use and self-contained. It's for city travelers who come and go; occasional and regular visitors - for tourism, leisure, work, culture. It's also for city residents, as it's the pocket-sized pad to accompany new urban lifestyles.
The City Notebook reflects the individual lifestyles of people who are independent and free-thinking. People who live their lives at a fast pace, always connected, but who can relax and enjoy themselves; people who are creative, and discriminating in their tastes.
The City Notebook is a perfect companion for those exploring the magic of the city.
" Not to find one's way around a city
does not mean much.
But to lose one's way in a city,
as one loses one's way in a forest,
requires some schooling..."
Walter Benjamin, Berlin Childhood, 1932.
The City Notebook is useful in planning a trip, organizing a stay, gathering information, news, internet addresses. During a trip it's helpful to note down useful information, personal reflections, addresses, experiences. In this way you can retrace your journey, revisit memories, exchange information, and update it for your next visit.
