When Moleskine told us that they’d be bringing back their Moleskine City Notebook collection, we were super excited!

These guides are handy — they provide insight into the whole city at a glance, and then they spotlight parts of the city, so you’re able to explore hidden corners and side streets via their detailed area maps.

Our buyer, Emma recently went on a vacation to New York (lucky girl!) and was keen to to try out the Moleskine City Notebook — New York City!
