New! Field Notes Colors "Day Game" Edition + Sale
Baseball's as American as it gets - boys and girls and friends from the block, moms and dads and grandmas and grandpas - at a small neighborhood park, a stadium named for a famous bank, a small AAA field or an empty lot - it's the epitome of a nostalgic summer day. According to Field Notes: "What are the last two words of the National Anthem? “Play Ball” of course."
In celebration of our favorite way to while away the day Field Notes created the 15th Field Notes COLORS seasonal release, The “Day Game” Edition, as a tribute to the game. This edition's joined by the very first release from FIELD NOTES BRAND BOOKS, Kevin Guilfoile’s true story about baseball and memory, A Drive into the Gap.
From Field Notes: "The “Day Game” Edition includes three memo books, each with a different color cover: Outfield Green, Infield Brown, and Hardball White. Each features high-gloss, foil-stamped type on a French Paper Company 100# cover, with white type on the green and brown books and “Baseball Stitching Red” on the white books. The interior pages are a 50# Finch Opaque and sport a light-tan version of our popular “Dot Grid” pattern. The Practical Applications section is, of course, related to our national pastime and these books are perfect for recording your fantasy team roster, Wiffle Ball stadium plans, or lifetime Cracker Jack prize list."
The “Day Game” Edition comes alongside a first edition printing of Kevin Guilfoile’s A Drive into the Gap the very first book from FIELD NOTES BRAND BOOKS - a true story about baseball and sons and fathers.
Again, Field Notes: "A Drive to the Gap is a true story about baseball. And fathers and sons. It’s about memory and identity, and an insidious illness that can rob a person of both.
"It’s also a detective story, an investigation into the improbable journey of a baseball bat from the hands of Roberto Clemente, and one of the most iconic moments in the game’s history, to a 12-year-old boy’s bedroom.
"A Drive to the Gap has been meticulously designed and typeset. It is larger (4.5″ x 6.5″) than a standard Field Notes memo book and features a foil-stamped, heavy cover stock. The text is set in Morris Fuller Benton’s classic Century Schoolbook and the interior pages are of a beautiful, recycled, natural “off-white” from Neenah Paper. The book is printed and perfect-bound by the venerable Stromberg Allen and Company (est. 1889) of Tinley Park, Illinois. It just might be the nicest thing we’ve made yet."
