When I read that Moleskine would be releasing a range of limited edition Alice’s Adventured in Wonderland notebook I knew I’d be placing an order for some.
There are 5 notebooks in the range in total:
Large themed canvas hard cover ruled notebook (limited to only 5000 prints)
Large themed white hard cover ruled notebook
Large themed black hard cover plain notebook
Pocket themed pink hard cover ruled notebook
Pocket themed blue hard cover plain notebook
I ordered the 2 available large ruled notebooks just because that is the format that I prefer. The quality is consistent with what we’ve come to expect from Moleskine and therefore they do not disappoint. As always my only gripe with Moleskine is their paper quality because I like to use fountain pens and the paper is too thin (only 70gsm) to be fountain pen friendly, but for everyday writing with a ballpoint or gel pen it is fine.
Each notebook comes with a colour matched ribbon bookmark and elastic closure, as well as themed front and back inside covers.
The first inside front cover features the Alice in Wonderland original Dodo illustration by John Tenniel with the quote: “Everything’s Got a Moral, if Only You Can Find it.”
The second inside page (adjacent to the Dodo) features an original Alice and Cheshire Cat illustration by John Tenniel and a space to enter “In case of loss” details.
Over the page on the flyleaf is a copy of Lewis Carroll’s original handwritten manuscript of his classic Alice in Wonderland.
The inside back cover has the standard expandable pocket with colour themed side and inside is the usual leaflet about Moleskine, the spine sticker for indexing, as well as limited edition playing card suite stickers.
Another feature of these notebooks is that the paper band around the notebooks can be folded and glued to create a themes bookmark.
Other than the covers and colour theme the only other difference I have noticed is that the canvas covered notebook is stamped on the front “in case of loss” page with the issue number out of the 5000 printed. This came as a pleasant surprise as this isn’t mentioned on the Moleskine Online Store.
On to what you are really here for! The photos…
