I use them! :)
A lot of readers of this blog want to use them but can’t bear to. They think “it’s so beautiful and nothing I put in there will be that beautiful, so if I write/draw in it, I’ll ruin it”. I used to be in that position myself so I get it…. it took me ages to work up the nerve to write in my Paperblanks Goethe. Now I use every notebook for something, but even so I have some sitting around until I find the right use for them.
Like, I have an O-Check journal I can’t even bear to take the plastic wrapper off’ve. I’ll need a new journal soon, but do I really want to use this as a journal? What if I come up with a better use for it? but what other use could I have for it? And if I don’t use it as a journal, I’ll need to buy another notebook to use for one, because I’ve managed to work my way through my collection.
It’s just that thought about using it and then regretting it when you think of a better use for it. ;)
Tbh, it weirds me out that the Moleskines Passion notebook for Art seems to be geared towards the art collector rather than the artist.
