    @2 LoveCraft :

    It’s your regular order of Steampunk, … but easy on the boilers … and with extra tentacles!

    Like Dan, Josh and I share a love of tentacles and old etchings (and we’re likely scanning stuff form the same sources); if you like this notebook you’ll probably like this shirt:

    Love all the custom moleskine things that are happening these days.

    There’s another service that sells artist’s engraved books, as well as doing custom books in smaller orders. Probably not a “poor mans” solution @ORINOS73, but maybe a little closer to a solution?


    Much cooler site interface too.

    or you could always just try and find someone who has access to a laser cutter. But I went to art school and can always use the one there…so i guess its easier for me =P

    I started laser cutting moleskines once i saw that first BB post about it. I’ve got some with the art of Brian Froud, some with Celtic Trees of Life, and of course a bunch with my own designs on them. Laser cutting is FUN!

    They also have some amazing Steampunk notebooks too like this one from Nick Kole:

    I wonder if anyone can do these with stencils and some sort of corrosive or abrasive? I remember once something about stenciling brass with lemon juice. I’d love a poor mans version of making my moleskine unique.

    Thoughts anyone?

    I bought one of these (different artist’s design, same provider) for a friend, and it just came in — it’s stunning. Really beautifully crafted.

    Someone included a note in the box saying their unicorn moleskine design was inspired by Boing Boing. Neato.

    Orinos73, there are plenty of cheap ways of decorating your Moleskine. My first ‘skine, I printed out some comics panels and glued ‘em on the cover with matte acrylic medium. A later one I drew on with a silver Sharpie.
