The moleskine trend is dying down a bit lately—especially since the engraving gives off toxic fumes—but there’s still a little life left in it…provided there’s a good design handy.

Engrave Your Book is designing leather covers that slip over Moleskines, with the usual art submitted by doodlers from Vermont to Stuttgart. It’s a good idea, and one of many, but how long before this breaks out of notebooks and into cellphones, kindles and laptops?

How long before we can get a little art on everything we own?
