Moleskine myDetour is an international project that encourages creative thinkers to sketch, write and draw in their Moleskines, sharing their creations with other enthusiasts around the world. In partnership with 826 Valencia, myDetour is currently stopped at 7 locations in San Francisco, where it will remain for one more week. The show has made previous stops in New York, Paris, Berlin, Milan and Istanbul (which we covered here), and will continue on to Tokyo, Japan. Stop by to see 50 one-of-a-kind notebooks from thinkers, writers, photographers, artists and designers from all of these stops.
Until it closes, myDetour will be accepting submissions of Moleskin creations around the theme "District of You," a tribute to familiar and extraordinary places in the San Francisco Bay area. After October 1st, all submitted notebooks will be juried and the top 10 notebooks will be selected for the International myDetour archive, traveling to all additional locations around the globe. In addition, the jury will choose one outstanding notebook to be featured, along with its author, at the next installation of myDetour in 2010.
The judges are Michael Carbatta, Creative Director, Chronicle Books; Marco Beghin, President, Moleskine America; Yves Behar, founder, fuseproject; and Leigh Lehman, co-founder and Executive Director, 826 Valencia.
