They have released some black paper sketchbooks that come in the landscape version I have, A4 and the smaller sketchbook. The paper in them is very matt black and very smooth. Curiously, mine (and I presume all) comes with black corrugated paper at each end to help keep its shape. This is loose so can be removed. The little envelope at the end is also black. I see a lot of buyers are using them to make little photo albums which is actually a very cute and nice way to use them. I plan to use it for sketches using white and silvers. It’s a very lovely addition to the Moleskine range that we all love so dearly.
