What is black and write and read all over?

Our Moleskines, of course.

And while we like the legendary notebook just as she is—what was good enough for Hemingway and Picasso is good enough for any modern day scribe or sketch artist—we're smitten with what Engrave Your Book offers to do to our tried and true tiny tome. The website, wholly dedicated to personalizing Moleskines, turns the elasticized wonder into an everyday pièce de résistance by laser engraving delicate, intricate images onto its oilcloth cardboard cover. Choose from one of many whimsical artist designs or upload your own.

So whether or not the indiscriminate scribbles on the inside are of unparalleled brilliance, rest assured the outside will be.
