"Detour is a Moleskine project dedicated to culture and creativity worldwide that features internationally recognized artists, architects, film directors, graphic designers, illustrators, and writers.

Detour is a small piece of the Moleskine journey, where interlacing stories merge. The travelling group show Detour, curated by Raffaella Guidobono, invites authors to compile and illustrate Moleskine notebooks with experienced knowledge insider tips for adventure hungry nomads. All of them deliver an intimate insight into the artists' creative process.

Amongst the notebooks some works contain extensive stories; others are turned into pieces of contemporary art and design.

Detour events have already taken place in London (2006), New York (2007), Paris (Spring 2008), Berlin (Fall 2008), Istanbul (Spring 2009), Tokyo (Fall 2009).

Detour supports lettera27, a non-profit Foundation."
