This is a swap for anyone who would like to fill in and then swap a Moleskine postal notebook. They cost around £3-£4 each and are easy to buy from amazon, and I assume other websites, such as the moleskine site. They are small booklets which contain just a few pages. You can fold up the outer cover which doubles as an envelope, and so post the entire thing. I thought these were a pretty nifty idea so I wanted to set up a swap as a reason to buy one! I will set this swap up as international, I will also do one for Europe only if people wish to save on postage. If anyone wishes to do a US only one for the same reasons, feel free.

You can fill in your notebook however you want, although I would say that each page has to have something on it. You can use the whole things to write a letter, fill it with lists, use it as an art notebook, cover it in stickers and washi tape....anything you like. However I think that everyone should make an effort to make the contents look nice.

I will give a while for the swap to be completed since some people might need time for the notebook to arrive, and then people wishing to draw or paint in their notebook will need time to do this.

I'm not going to let newbies into this swap, simply because the book itself costs a bit of money, and then there is a bit of effort needed in filling the book in, and I don't want anyone to miss out. For the same reason I wont accept any recent or unexplained 1s or 3s.

This is only the second swap I've hosted, so I hope there's a few people who like the idea of it. Let me know if you have any questions!

I'd love to join in, looking on Amazon at the notebooks, it looks like there are two sizes , does it matter which? Sorry my measurements are US - 3.5 x 5.5 inches or 4.5 x 6.75 inches. Thanks

hi, yes either would be fine, its up to the sender which size to send

The day I signed up, I ordered the notebooks from Amazon, but they are on order. I hope it arrives soon, but there's no indication when it will arrive. Soon, I hope!
