Moly_X Group 4 in a Dutch newspaper!!!

 

Translation: It reminds one of friendship albums in elementary school. Every time a new surprise as to what your friends made for you. Moleskine exchange groups kind of do the same thing: Five tot ten people from different countries who draw well and know each other through the internet form a group. Every member buys a Moleskine, the chic notebooks with the elastic band, and mails it to the next group member. That person makes another illustration in it and sends it on again. Etc. Result: a notebook full of international art pieces. Worldwide there are 35 groups. On a joint website the members track the books to the countries. They also post images of the illustrations onto Flickr. Dutch graphic designer Anna Denise van der Reijden (24) is also participating: group 4. She exchanges books with people from England, Germany, the US, Argentina, Russia, and Israel.
