The Moleskine Postal Notebook has been out for while. It first caught my eye over a year ago when I noticed it on Instagram. It's a cool concept, but I've always struggled with how to use it. Here's why.
The notebook cover has flaps allowing it to be folded into an envelope and mailed. Some people mail the blank notebook to their pen pals. Once received, the flaps can be removed and the recipient has a nice little Moleskine notebook. I like the design. It's clever. Unfortunately, the paper used in these notebooks is not fountain pen friendly. And most of my pen pals are serious fountain pen users. So, I knew few of them would want to use the notebook for writing.
Then I realized there are just enough pages to tell a story with a few printed photos and a nice fine tip marker. Check out my video below to see the end result. I'd love to know how you use this charming and interesting product. I think it has so much potential.
