mol Moleskine, publisher of legendary notebooks, is pleased to announce new titles in the Passions collection, dedicated to keeping track, organizing and recording the passions of our lives. Designed to host notes, clippings, drawings, memories and thoughts on a variety of specific leisurely topics, each Journal includes a set of themed page layouts, themed calendars, glossaries, listings, and a core part of alphabetically organized and tabbed pages for you to fill in.
The five new titles for 2012 are Art, Beer, Chocolate, Home Life, and Restaurant-Dinning-Out Experiences. The Art Journal has been created with a contribution from Art for Business, a young and passionate association that focuses on artistic language and its effect on people and organizations. Ernst Knam is the award-winning chocolate gourmet who has been involved in the creation of the Chocolate Journal.
Knam's special Moleskine praline recipe is included inside one of the notebook's tabs to celebrate his collaboration in developing the Journal. Both Art for Business and Ernst Knam are available for interviews.

The new five titles join the existing Passions Journals for Style, Gardening, Dog, Cat, Travel, Baby, Recipes, Wine, Book, Film, Music and Wellness. All journals feature the iconic attributes of the Moleskine notebooks with their rounded corners and elastic closures. The black cover is fully embossed with a tight texture of themed images and writings. They come with a different series of themed stickers and icons, for page and tab customization. On the back end paper there is a double pocket, for clippings, tickets and card collections. The classic Moleskine elastic band keeps everything closed, tidy and neat.
