I've used Moleskines for the last 7 years. I like the pocket books. I like the lined pages. But being a photographer, graphic designer and non-linear scriptwriter, i tried the blank pages and it was a mess...i tried their grid lines, but the lines are too dark. now I found Leuctturm1917. AMAZING. Here's every reason they beat Moleskines pound for pound - lighter lines. - grids available in dotted - more pages - numbered pages - table of contents - comes with sticker labels - the first and last page aren't really "pages to write on" like Moleskine, because of the way they are glued, they are hard to write on anyway. try em.
