Maybe the Coolest Field Notes Yet! *Pre-Order!*
The FNC-17 : “EXPEDITION” edition marks the start of FIELD NOTES COLORS fifth year - a little side project of limited edition FIELD NOTES notebooks. FIELD NOTES COLORS explores a wide variety of papers, colors, and printing techniques, but with this new edition, they’ve gone way beyond the design to expand the actual usefulness of their notebooks.
Looks-wise, the Expedition edition is awesome. I'll let FIELD NOTES take it from here:
"The Expedition edition features a hi-visibility “Antarctic Survey Orange” front cover and “Polar Night Black” back cover, with a subtle varnish effect featuring a topographic map of Antarctica. The body pages feature the popular ‘dot grid’ graph paper, printed in light gray.
"But the real innovation here is the paper. It’s maybe not even fair to call it paper. The whole book is printed on Yupo Synthetic paper, an amazing water- and tear-proof paper extruded from polypropylene pellets in Chesapeake, Virginia.
"The majority of our customers may not test the limits of these books, but the map of Antarctica is neither hyperbole nor coincidence. We’ll be sending the “EXPEDITION” edition to the South Pole with explorer Ben Saunders as he and his team retrace Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated journey to the Pole and back, on foot and unsupported, starting in October 2013. More on that soon."FIELD NOTES also subjected the new edition notebooks to twelve scientific tests which you can explore on their site right HERE.
