Although I hardly ever pick up a pen and write these days, I still have a real affection for good quality notebooks and the Moleskine range is, I believe, the perfect paper book. Based on a very old design, used by poets, scholars and writers, the Moleskine books, secured by a simple elasticated band, have been almost invaluable to those who have used them.
On the other extreme, the Apple iPad is also an amazing tool to write with, using a variety of apps, but is industrial and hard compared to the Moleskine notepads. So being able to combine the 2 would be perfect!
If you want to have the best of both worlds, get an iPad Moleskine case and protect your new toy whilst also keeping the look and feel of a real paper book.
