Moleskine notebooks and 29 famous architects including Richard Meier, Ron Radziner, Constantin Boym, Michael Morris, Stephen Doyle, Alison Spear, and Gaetano Pesce collaborated to bring us a limited-edition sketchbook. The proceeds from its sale will go toward the preservation of Philip Johnson’s mid-century masterpiece of the same name, ‘The Glass House.’

You can get a peek at all the sketches inside the book as well as order information here.

Implications - One of the most effective forms of not-for-profit fundraising is offering consumers the opportunity to pay more money for 'special edition' versions of products the company already offers.
