Moleskine - Curiouser and Curiouser

This is a bit of an impulsive post. I treated myself to this Moleskine that 
I don't really need 
and I love it so much I wanted to share it with you.


I'm a huge fan of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It's one of my favourite books and always leaves me full of complete wonder and excitement when I read it. 

I love the way it's written, the nonsensical laungauge that still somehow makes perfect sense. I love the poetry, the and the way it just transforms your imagination. I remember actually enjoying studying the poems at school - and that's saying something! I can relate to Alice in so many ways, I very nearly had 'curiosity often leads to trouble' tattooed on my waist a few years back.

Of course the Disney cartoon is brilliant, and the Tim Burton film was really interesting to watch and draw similarities to the book. I'm such a geek when it comes to Alice.

Anyway on to the sketchbook. As soon as I saw the design I knew it was the one I wanted. I believe there are 4 available but this was my favourite. 


At  14cm x 9cm (that's about hand-size for those who can't be bothered to get a ruler) it's smaller than my other Moleskines but it's just the right size to keep in my bag for moments of inspiration. I think I might use it to note down any random thoughts or  moments where I'm just pondering. I could even write down some dreams in there - they are getting weird lately.

 To be honest I never stick to what my notebooks are actually for, they all get doodled in or get used as a diary for a couple of days before I forget. Either way I love looking back on them. In this digital age it's nice to have something physical to flick through. 

The inside cover has the quote-

"Everything's got a moral,
 if only you can find it"

and there are some gorgeous illustrations to go with it. I just love how it looks!

There's some little stickers in the pocket and the detail and quotes and passages on the inside which is such a nice touch. 


This one was about £9 from Amazon and it's only a couple of quid more the the larger size. I'm almost certain I need to get a lined version to add to my overflowing notebook collection.

I'd love to know your favourite book or if you're an Alice fan too.
And am I the only one that has a notebook obsession?
