Brad Fisher, “Le Bloc-Notes”, 2011
Ever since my formative years, I’ve been carrying Moleskine notebooks in my bag. In them I’ve kept record of my innermost thoughts written from les cafés trottoirs in Paris. I’ve drawn silly doodles from the banks of the canals in Amsterdam. I’ve also gone so far as to fill them with my Dean & Deluca grocery lists in New York. These notebooks have been my best friend and saviour for most of my life.
For those of you who don’t know the history of this legendary notebook, it all started many years ago with a small black book with rounded edges, an elastic page holder and an expandable inner pocket. Slowly taking the over the world, theses books found themselves in the hands of Picasso, Hemingway and van Gogh and the like.
Now, the company has created the Moleskine Artist Marketplace and has commissioned a powerful arsenal of artists to create their own personal works of art just for you, my little Stan D’artisans! For example, Brad Fisher has brought to life his vision of 1920s Parisian Café Society. Ian Stevenson adds a bright splash of color to his extraordinarily dark world. Dutch artist Louis Reith takes typographic forms and maps to create mountain landscapes.
Don’t worry. I already know what you’re going to ask. Yes, I’m working on a Stan D’Arde collection, and I’ll let you know when they are ready for purchase.
