Create your own moleskine-like visual diary
Moleskine's are a brand of notebook / diary/ sketchbook that many people swear by. They are legendary amongst writers and artists and have been used by everyone from Van Gough through to Bruce Chatwin. They are a high quality French product, but unfortunately they are not cheap. In response to a discussion on the yahoo botanicalart newsgroup, Michael Shannon has produced a guide showing how he makes his own moleskine-like sketchbooks for less than a dollar. He has put a lot of work into the instructions and should be easy enough for anyone to follow.
