This holiday season the Weinberg Memorial Library is selling a new line of limited edition Moleskine® notebooks, inspired by the calligraphic and ornamental masterworks preserved in the library's Zaner-Bloser Penmanship Collection.
Featured on each notebook is "The Proud Art Shall Conquer," a peacock flourish by master penman Fielding Schofield (1845-1924). Schofield’s work references the motto of 19th century professional penmanship journal The Teacher of Penmanship: "The Proud Art of Beautiful Writing Shall Conquer the Hearts of All Men."
Our Moleskine® Large Cahier notebooks are 5" x 8.25" with 80 acid-free pages and are packaged in sets of two — one in black with ruled paper, and one in craft brown with blank paper.
On campus, the notebooks are available for purchase at the Weinberg Memorial Library's first-floor circulation desk for the price of $20 per set (cash or check). Off campus, the notebooks are available for order at $20 per set, plus shipping and handling. You can either fill out and send in one of our order forms (to pay by check) or contact Special Collections at (570) 941-7002 to put in a credit card order.
All proceeds benefit the care, preservation and digitization of the Zaner-Bloser Penmanship Collection.
