Moleskine is pushing a new “MSK” format for designing your own custom pages on your computer to be printed and attached to one of their famous notebooks. But I’m confused. While I understand the utility of custom pages, especially some of the pre-formated variants that let you print out a list of Plaxo or Vcard contacts or iCal events, I don’t understand how you physically attach them to your notebook. I suppose you can just fold them and slot them in, but that’s not very elegant—and certainly not as swish as the idea I had first imagined, in which Moleskine sold a new notebook with a little clip or binder that made it easy to couple custom pages to blank.
It’s enough to make me want to simply print out the blank pages, fold them in quarters, and sew them roughly inside two flaps of cardboard.
