Our good friends over at Acquire have turned us to Moleskine’s latest offerings — the Black Collection. It’s a new collection of books designed for photos, scrapbooking, art, and good ol’ doodling. Fluorescent gel pens and pencils are available as well as they’ll definitely flow well with the blacked-out pages. More info over at Moleskine.
Times have changed, friends. The days of carrying a pen and a pencil are no more as LAMY’s Twin Pen gives us the two-in-one combo. Sure, they’re not the first to do it, but they’re definitely the first to do it right. A smooth-writing ballpoint pen is mated with a 0.5mm pencil. The matte black titanium oxide coat is slick and the fact that it’s got a built-in eraser for the pencil is definitely a plus.
