Moleskine Images from Peter Tan

 

From Peter Tan,

“Three are moleskine while the other 2 are Front Notebook & an old diary.

I am a 30 year old civil engineer working for a engineering design firm in Ortigas. My interests are photography, notebooks, books, pens, stamps, graphics, etc. I usually use Moleskine Square Notebooks, the lines help me in my work sketches & note alignment. I use the square skine for work drawings when in the field where you have to draw without rulers.”

“As you can see the spines are the first to go in my moleskine. I tried other notebooks over the years but always buy a moleskine when I get the chance.”

“The contents of my notebooks are like I said, work sketches, meeting schedules, reminders, contact information. If I have a nice family or travel photo then I just print these in 2R size & paste them on a page with some notes about the picture.”

“After several years when you read the notebooks again, it is like a diary of sorts.”

“I have a flickr account if you want to see some of my “artsy” photography images. – http://www.flickr.com/photos/57857775@N03/

Moleskine Star Wars Limited Edition Giveaway!

11/08/11: Updated with Google+ point entry. Details below.

A long time ago… well almost 13 years ago, Avalon.ph was established (you can read our short history here). It was 1999, the Philippine Internet community is buzzing with companies and websites riding on the dotcom boom. Unfortunately after 13 years, most didn’t make it.

Since 1999, Avalon.ph continues to be one of the most patronized local online shopping websites in the country. We would like to say “thank you” again for your amazing support. To end 2011 we would like to give you an opportunity to win some of the most coveted items this upcoming Holiday season.

Here’s your chance to win a Moleskine Star Wars Large Limited Edition Plain Notebook! Not only that, by joining this giveaway you are also increasing your chances of winning our next one (a Moleskine planner)! Read on for the details.

A limited edition dedicated to the greatest space epic ever told combines classic Moleskine features with exclusive artwork from the original 1977 film.

The inner pages are decorated with material from the Lucas film archive and include bespoke Star Wars paper inserts or stickers and full-colour end papers.

Features 240 pages of acid-free plain paper, pocket, ribbon and elastic closure.

Mechanics. Do at least one of the following:

1. Leave a comment below about the first time you heard about “Star Wars”. It doesn’t have to be about the film, it can be about their comic books, action figures & other merchandise/variations. (+1 point)

Note: Entry won’t count if for some reason you unintentionally talked about …  Star Trek.

2. Blog about this giveaway with your answer for #1 linking back to this post. Please enter the link of your blog entry in the comments below. (+3 points)

Moleskine Quick Sale, Part 2 – 2011

First-come, First-served. EMAIL is the only way to order. We cannot officially process text message orders until you email me since it is first-come(email), first-served. Please send all order-related emails to: support(at)avalon.ph. You can also send a direct email here. Thank you.

Some items here are UNWRAPPED, some have been in storage for a while for personal use. Being unwrapped, some might have minor to noticeable bumps or dust spotting that can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Please take this into consideration before you buy. MOST are like-new, we just need to put the first few sentences as a ‘catch-all’ phrase on any condition-related issues especially for “new” buyers. We DO NOT sell junk. If there are major flaws it will be mentioned. Most of the visible flaws are those that will eventually show up after using your Moleskine for 2-4 weeks.

We cannot allow returns/exchange or refunds except of course on exceptional cases. You have to agree to this before purchasing. Those who are new or never bought from Avalon.ph before, you have to accept that as one of the terms for this sale. For those who bought from us before, you know how we work making sure every customer is satisfied.

We will be redundant in describing the stocks to avoid mistakes when you read it. Still, read it carefully. The list isn’t organized in the most easy-to-read manner so please pay attention.

Items are complete or missing non-essential inserts (the Moleskine history sheet). It will be mentioned if missing items are essential (like in the case of Moleskine City, the stickers). Most unwrapped items missing the wrap-around band (the “paper brand” band, not the black band). As far as I know except for 2 (which I described below), all of the pages clean and no ink marks. Remember, these are journals that will probably be in the same condition as described if you use them for 1-4 weeks.

In essence, the more abused a Moleskine look, the more enamoring it gets (at least for some Moleskine lovers that I know). There’s actually a store in Manhattan back in 2007 that opens a new Moleskine, “removed the branded band around them, kicked these books about (and through a few puddles of coffee) to give them a well-worn, as used-by-traveling-authors feel, then returned the branded band and placed them on the shelf for sale.” – via PSFK.

PAYMENT: Shipping only. As fast as possible. Please do not order if you are planning to pay after 5 days. Be fair to other buyers when you email me. Play nice.

ORDERING: Since some items are similar, include the CODE indicated after each title in your order email. Don’t hesitate to email me just the CODE to earn the right to buy it as soon as you read it. Just make sure that you won’t change your mind.

Images: They are for reference only. May or may not be actual item (most of the time they are).

I may miss something but everything is in the spirit of good faith and best business practices. Happy browsing!
