This Moleskine book opens up into a desktop calendar. The list price is $19.95 but Amazon is selling it for $3.74. As Michael Leddy noted, they should have marked it down to $3.65.

  1. paper? eeew. How does it talk to my pager/cell/gCallendar/shoe ?!

    As for the fetishization, just because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean that some people shouldn’t get off on it.

  2. Another product from a 15 year old company that positions itself as being 100. If this is as poorly made as their notebooks I want no part of it.

  3. Sheesh. All the moleskin hate. It’s a cute/clever product that costs about as much as a cup of premium coffee!

  4. Whoa, Retrojoe! You forgot to add a gwumpy-fwowny face to your comment. Let me fix it for you:

    “Another product from a 15 year old company that positions itself as being 100. If this is as poorly made as their notebooks I want no part of it. >:(”

    All better!

  5. In New Zealand moleskins refers to a type of trousers. We call these products notebooks. I don’t think Moleskin company could fetishize their product here.

    I don’t even use my 365 days of beading desktop calendar. It’s stuck on Sept 29 as I type this.

    1. It’s Moleskine, not moleskin (<--no e at the end). It's not sold out, but no longer available at that price. The cheapest is about $11 shipped.

  6. Moleskin is a fabric, it’s a sort of tough cotton velvet. You can get moleskin shirts as well.

    The ‘original’ Moleskine notebooks Bruce Chatwin rhapsodised about were made of moleskin fabric polished flat to make fake leather.

    The current ones are a fake version of the original fake. Which almost makes them interesting. I’m currently using a fake version of the fake fake made by Ryman.

  7. They’re still available via Amazon, but for $19.99 and other prices. Look for “Moleskine desk calendar.” MoleskineUS has them for $20.95.

    I found out about this deal at Notebook Stories.

  8. Amazon — the same company that puts small businesses and small-scale maker-suppliers out of business? Why does boingboing support this again?

    1. Wow, what a stunningly stupid comment. There are many, MANY small businesses which exist only because they can sell through Amazon. Have you ever actually looked at the site?

  9. I honestly prefer a cheapo composition book. I own 2 moleskines and the only advantage I can see is that they are smaller and the cover is more durable plus they have that handy elastic strap and pocket to keep things from falling out of your book.
