Moleskin Sketchbooks are based on notebook distributed in Paris during the 19th and 20th centuries, handmade by small French bookbinders who supplied the local stationary shops around the early 20th century. The author Bruce Chatwin fashioned them describing the notebooks he used.

In the mid 1990’s, Maria Sebregondi pitched the idea of resurrecting the iconic notebooks to the company Modo & Modo. As a result Modo & Modo trademarked the Moleskin brand and began reintroducing them in 1997. I used to get mine from the Design Museum at Shad Thames after being introduced to them by one being gifted to me. I was immediately hooked. I would religiously travel to the Design Museum to stock up on Moleskins, in those days only a select few places stocked them. Everything about the Moleskin Sketchbook I love, the paper, the folding pocket and the size. I have yet to meet a creative person who has not invested in a Moleskin at some stage in her or her career.

I have been working in partnership with a cool East London Publishers where magic has been achieved. We have produced a Ltd Edition Sketchbook of 100 of my drawings based on the classic Moleskin Sketchbook
