Moleskine's latest cassette collection is being launched in celebration of the technology's 50th anniversary. Invented and released in 1962 on behalf of Philips, the handheld devices were once coveted by music lovers throughout the world. They have since been replaced with an array of sleek devices, leaving many with inoperative stacks of plastic.

This notepad set reworks the abandoned tapes into the Moleskine brand. The red, yellow and blue designs mock the familiar coils and reels, though they may be foreign to younger students.

Online sites like Amazon will serve as host to the books come October 15th. The leaked photos display a 'playlist' section, ideal for avid enthusiasts in search of some much needed old school inspiration.
