0.00 Night

0.00 Night was born during one sleepless working night. We were looking for an alternative way to publish a special series of Renato D’Agostin’s color pictures. Images of an oneiric, surreal and mysterious New York in the dark. A Moleskine notebook on the desk, the perfect support for a journey into the abyss of night. But something was missing. We were missing People, their observations, feelings, memories. So we decided to ask as many people as we knew personally the same question: What is Night for you?

We didn’t say anything about the project just to have a pure and immediate reaction to the word Night, the only request was to answer in their mother language. Responses flowed in and going through more than two hundred personal answers was an intimate and meaningful experience, a fascinating voyage through the diverse, obscure and shining darkness of the night. In one year we received and collected responses from all over the world. And thanks to all those “nights” we created the 0.00 Night notebook.

This custom 0.00 Moleskine was designed to be experienced by people. We left some blank pages for your thoughts, your signs, your night.
