    I use these to file 3x3" gel filters. They are perfect for this.

    Lest Moleskines be accused of having the Tardis-like property of being larger on the inside than on the outside, let me confess to having been off by an inch in my measurement. The memo pocket I have here is 3.5" by 5.5" in outside dimensions.

    When sentencing I would like it to be taken into consideration that all rulers have been appropriated from our desk drawer for infant art projects, leaving for impromptu measurements only an analogue drafting scale, which starts its 1:1 inch numbering at minus one.

    Do you set the mole free once you've skinned it?

    Another possibility might be to make a pocket sized box for small prints.
    Hi,
    This may be one of those things that is easier to show than explain but here goes... David is quite right of course that if you mount the pictures to the pages of the book you will quickly end up with an overstuffed little book that won't close. This look may suit a mad english professor's briefcase but certainly not a photo portfolio. There is a simple solution. Fold open the moleskine (including the flyleafs) and use a robust guillotine to trim out the contents so you are left with perhaps 8-10mm of the original width of the page still bound into the book. carefully measure the stack the of paper. Measure how many sheets of the photo paper you like stacked back to back equal the thickness of the the sheaf of paper you removed. (allow for interleaving paper if you choose) You now have a set of contents that will not cause the book to bulge.

    The idea is to mount them back to back and then attach them to the short spine left in then book. I have succesfully tried: gluing a short spine of thin rag paper between that prints which is then mounted to the books spine and, mounting the prints back to back with the with the books spine sandwiched between the two prints. teh first is more tedious but carries the advantage that one error (of measurement, placement slipping during glue-up etc.) doesn't sink the the whole process.

    Since the number of prints that fill the book is quite a bit fewer than the the nominal page count I first had the idea of trimming out the excess page count (divided equally across the # of pages in the journal) and mounting the prints directly to the remaining pages. I found however that this incurred all the problems of method two above and added the problem of obtaining even trim (which the guillotine eliminates) YMMV.

    Two things to remember are: allow for a gutter on the spine side and if you use the spine don't forget to include it in your measurement for the stack height.
    best.
    Celac.

    That's a very neat solution. I like it.

    So I'm on Jury Duty this week, and that means that on my lunch hour I can wander over to Pearl Paint on Canal St., just a few blocks from the Manhattan courts. I picked up some small Kolo albums--5x7" and 2-3/8" square, and I'm going to try them out. I figure I can either drymount or starch mount the prints. I picked up some archival wheat starch and a wide brush as well.

    So I ended up making a 5x7" book of albumen prints with one of the Kolo albums, and I think it came out nicely. I drymounted one 6x6cm print on the cover and six 4x5" prints inside. I keep it in my camera bag in a 6x9" envelope.

    I'd post a picture, but I don't have access to a digital camera or a scanner for the next couple of months.

    This is a neat idea. Please do upload some shots of yours, Dave, when you get the chance.

    For anyone interested in the different models available:

    http://www.moleskine.com/eng/default.htm

    They have one model with detachable pages designed for drawing/painting but it may also have a place for photographs.
