The creative person’s notebook has been called “a memory warehouse,” “a means of detachment,” “the perfect place to document daydreams.” As a lover of the notebooks and sketchbooks of famous artists, designers, and other creators, I’m utterly delighted by Moleskine: The Detour Book (public library), based on legendary notebook’s global Detour Project — a traveling exhibition that began in 2006 and has since collected more than 250 notebooks, including ones by beloved artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, and designers like Paula Scher, Dave Eggers, and Spike Jonze.
