My Moleskine hack is a finalist in the My Moleskine 2.0 Exhibition. If you happen to be in the Hong Kong area, take a look at the exhibit and vote for your favorite design.

It’s kind of sad when your notebook is better traveled than you are.

Moleskin 2.0 Exhibition Entry

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

I entered the Moleskin 2.0 Exhibition contest. My idea is to use the fore-edge of the notebook. When you fold the notebook length-wise (when the spine practically touches the long edge of the back cover), the fore-edge of the pages fan out. Only when the notebook is folded this way, does a subway map clearly appear. This is due to the fact that the map is printed on the edge while the notebook is positioned like this. You can hide the fact that you are consulting a subway map and be spared the embarrassment and scorn from locals. It’s easier to show you than to explain it.

I was inspired by Martin Frost, a fore-edge painter. I saw his stuff (really amazing stuff) originally on Laughing Squid. Check it out.
