I’ve looked at this little book ever since it arrived and from the start was unhappy with the quality of the paper. I’m guessing this type of Moleskine is more for writers than artists, as it is filled with plain paper that is similar to standard copy paper that you might put in your printer – about 80gsm. OK for drawing on, but I was very dubious about using any wet media. I know I could have glued pages together, or glued extra paper over the pages, but then the book would have become too thick to close comfortably. I decided in the end to take out the original paper and rebind it with my own. I carefully cut the cover and added in an extra piece for the spine, so the front and back are the original covers. The rules state that it’s OK to do that, provided the book remains the same size from the front.
You're welcome to pick your way through threads and stitches, but I'd be really grateful if you could be kind enough to refrain from pinning.
