@schuth I’m not transcribing the journals, I’m just creating an index. (Listen to me: “just”? That’s a laugh. This project is going to eat me alive...) As for the roman numerals, they were the original numbering system when I was using large lined Moleskines and I didn’t find them unwieldy. I would have happily climbed up into all sorts of nonsense involving pallets of D’s and quivers of X’s, and who knows what else. But for some reason, I simply stopped numbering my journals when I switched away from hardcover Moleskines in 2009. I introduced the red-ink arabic numbering only about two years ago (when I had reached #34 or 35).
