I just received photos of Moleskine’s Limited-Edition PacMan Notebooks and I though you might want to take a closer look. Originally these were scheduled to be released in September, but the publication date has been pushed back to November 2010 and is subject to change.
Thirty years ago, Namco, a Japanese gaming house created not just a new, popular video game, but a cultural icon that would define the eighties; now, Moleskine’s limited-edition PacMan notebooks commemorate the hungriest video-game hero of all time. The five-piece assortment includes pocket and large-sized books, as well as a colorful Volant set in commemorative packaging.
The pocket notebooks are embossed with playful, pixilated imagery that includes PacMan, ghost characters, and fruit imagery. The larger notebooks are embossed with a glossy/matte replica of the game screen. Each notebook includes a ghost printed inside the cover and decorative sticker inserts. Back covers of each notebook feature traditional video game lines such as “Game Over”, “Insert Coin”, and “High Score.” The communication band is uniform for all of the notebooks: it shows the vast array of characters and the official Pac-Man logo with 30th anniversary information. The special-edition Volant pack includes four different colored books with an embossed silver character on each notebook.
