There are lots of great Moleskine hacks around and this one by Trumpetvine Travels can be added to the list. As an artist, she wasn’t happy with the paper inside the moleskin for her artwork but loved the strong cover and inner pocket.

I have developed a process for replacing the paper (aka Moleskine Reloaded) while retaining all the other wonderful attributes of the Moleskine. These instructions describe exactly how I do this process, but one can of course vary the project extensively to suit other notebook sizes, papers, or covers. The pages themselves are sewn together with a Coptic style binding.
