The purveyor of the legendary black notebook—used by Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemingway—opens its first stateside store, inside the Shops at Columbus Circle. The small space is reminiscent of a European newspaper kiosk, with black-paneled walls, orange Lucite bins and a city map covering the floor. It stocks all things necessary to get your creative juices flowing, including classic leather-bound notebooks ($10–$20), paper journals in every color ($6–$19) and limited-edition Star Wars and Peanuts 12-month planners ($18–$25). Keep your electronics safe with stylish polyurethane backpacks ($150), and hard-shell cases for both tablets ($70) and e-readers ($50).
