As we were waking back from the Javits Center after a day of hardcore shopping for the store, saw this and realized "they are already here". What do you think a space alien would like for christmas this year?

It's never too late to get organized. Moleskine's 18 month planner is the perfect way to keep your life together starting today and takes you all the way to the end of 2010! Available in 2 sizes and in hard or soft cover.


Tove Jansson is the author of the amazing Moomintroll comic strips (also now back in print in fab large hardcover editions). Here is another side of her - just perfect for those late summer days at the beach. See you there.

In The Summer Book Tove Jansson distills the essence of the summer—its sunlight and storms—into twenty-two crystalline vignettes. This brief novel tells the story of Sophia, a six-year-old girl awakening to existence, and Sophia's grandmother, nearing the end of hers, as they spend the summer on a tiny unspoiled island in the Gulf of Finland. Together they amble over coastline and forest in easy companionship, build boats from bark, create a miniature Venice, write a fanciful study of local bugs. They discuss things that matter to young and old alike: life, death, the nature of God and of love. "On an island," thinks the grandmother, "everything is complete." In The Summer Book, Jansson creates her own complete world, full of the varied joys and sorrows of life.
