COVER OF YOUR MOLESKINE.
Moleskins come in "classic" and "large" sizes
(3.5"x5.5", and 5"x8.25", respectively). If you're

Press flowers, keep ticket stubs, write lyrics, overhear conversations, sketch people and places
you see, write passing thoughts and anything else you want. This is a helpful thing for writers
and artists, so you can always have ideas that you compile over the day, your brain is
stimulated and you can easily get past "art blocks".
