Welcome To The Anablog

By | January 19, 2005

Here’s a new blog dedicated to the craft of penmenship and paper over the digital world, put together by two great Moleskinners, graphic designer Mike Rohde and Armand Frasco of Moleskinerie.com.

[Journalisimo] is an attempt to invite a return to analog. Many of us live very digital lives. We push pixels around screens. Our lives are stored as bits on shiny hard drives. Our words and images can be published online, available moments later, all around the world. But this digital life can often seem very shallow.

While we recognize the power of our digital existence, we long for the tactile feel of ink on paper. We celebrate the freedom from power supplies, batteries, wireless networks and fragile electronics. We seek to elevate the written word and the freehand sketch on fine paper. We celebrate the journal as the optimal analog device for expression and enjoyment.

It’ll be interesting to see what they come up with. So far it looks good, though I’m of course biased, as they’ve included one of my own humble offerings in their blog already.
