There is a great deal of difference between an eager man who wants to read a book and the tired man who wants a book to read.
A long time ago I created a Moleskine Japanese Album for a (then) friend of mine. He was getting quite arrogant (side-effect of studying medicine) and I thought that maybe, just maybe, I could bring him down to earth with some beautiful quotations (okay, I admit, I am a sucker for beautiful language). Given that I printed the pages it involved a lot of glue, some foil and a lot of patience.
Funny thing — today it would have been easier — much, much easier.
Milk books offers printed Moleskine notebooks for about $50. I haven’t tried them out, but I have a really nice idea for one.
If you like Moleskine and would like to have an unique printed version, it might be well worth a look.
