Someone on Reddit was trying to figure out how to use a Moleskine notebook for multimedia art journaling. The overwhelming advice was “Don’t.” Several people recommended hand-binding their own books, which is easy and very satisfying. But you can also use cheap composition notebooks, and Strathmore makes some really nice multimedia coil-bound journals. One benefit to coil-bound notebooks is that there’s less chance you’ll overfill the notebook and stress or break the binding. I know people love a nice, fat journal. It’s not a good idea to add a lot of bulk to them, though. I’ve overfilled a few, but I’ve learned strike a balance. Most of mine, whether I bound them or bought them, lie fairly flat.
