I found this blog post from papersnobbery as I was searching for “Exacompta” on google.com/blogs.
“The great quest began sometime in mid-2006 when I realized the new Moleskine planners coming out didn’t include the one I loved so dearly, the “visual” weekly large. I love this format because it looks like iCal – everything mapped out at a week-to-view. I didn’t like the idea of the new softcover ones, through I considered selling out and settling.
Then my good friend showed me in glee her new planner! It was an Exacompta weekly visual planner – just what I had been looking for. She got hers at Barnes and Noble before the new year, and I was out of luck when I combed through their sale pile. None left.
Vickerey was my savior. Not only did they have my dream planner in stock, but it was on sale! It arrived today and I couldn’t be happier. Black “ostrich-skin” cover, very flexible and soft. The paper is creamy, smooth and slightly thicker than Moleskine paper – no bleed through. It’s 8.25″ x 6″ – almost the same size as my old Moleskine.
I love it. The saga draws to a close for now – and I get (almost) a whole year of using my beautiful new planner.

I love a happy ending!
