Moleskine is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the audio cassette tape.
This [limited edition] large-sized notebook features a black hard cover with themed silver and green debossing that resembles a cassette tape. It has rounded edges and 240 unlined pages. Also included are cassette-themed endpapers, a sewn-in ribbon bookmark and a set of Limited Edition audio cassette stickers.
I have my eye on this edition as I've become a Moleskine maniac over the last year or so. My personal collection includes the Marc Jacobs limited edition notebook for Barneys, the red classic large, and the most recent Style Journal.
The Moleskine Audio Cassette notebooks (also available with a red cassette) will be available for purchase on September 19, 2012, and will retail for close to $20.

I don't think people have any idea how excited I am about the return of No Doubt. They were the first musical group that I ever wrote to; Gwen inspired me to learn how to sew (the dress she wore on the "Tragic Kingdom" album cover was my inspiration); when they reunited for a comeback tour a few years back, I bought one ticket and went by myself, because I was afraid the opportunity to see them live might pass me by forever, and when I had the opportunity to attend a show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week last year, I was set on attending L.A.M.B.
With their first original release in a decade, the quartet have released their first single, "Settle Down"--a single that leading lady Gwen Stefani refers to as a song about being overwhelmed. Despite the track's title, the mood is very upbeat with a layers of ska,pop, and punk. The band's full LP, "Push and Shove" will be released this fall.
