New! America The Beautiful Field Notes

fieldnotes, field notes, notebook, america, america the beautiful

Brand new FIELD NOTES! The "America The Beautiful" Edition is here just in time for the sunshine that makes our greyed world beautiful again. Each set of three includes a road-trip-in-the-Woody worthy sticker for your vent window or Wagoneer. Hurry, hurry - these will not last!

To describe the new edition and the process behind the nostalgic design, we'll let The Masters speak for themselves:

"When you think of FIELD NOTES, two things should be abundantly clear by now: first, obviously, we are obsessed with the design and variety of pocket notebooks of the twentieth century. Second, simply put, we love the U.S.A. The good, the bad, the corny, the deep; all of it. Our commitment to American materials and labor is well known.

"As we set out to create the eighteenth COLORS limited edition, we dug into Aaron (Draplin)’s collection of vintage memo books for inspiration, and set out to pay tribute to the cross-country-road-trip spirit of America, via the vibrant full-color aesthetic of the beautifully-roughhewn memo books and road maps of the 1960s.

"In today’s world of computerized precision, it was challenging to find anything but the brightest-white paper, and our printer takes great pride in perfection. Printing oversaturated photos on yellowed paper, with a purposefully out-of-register 100-line screen, was nearly outside the capabilities of modern machinery and left pressmen scratching their heads. But we made it happen! The dust has settled, and we present our beefiest FIELD NOTES ever. Colorful stock photography of “Spacious Skies,” “Amber Waves,” and “Mountains Majesty” are reproduced in full-color on heavyweight, off-white, Tango-coated one-side covers, and stuffed with 48 pages of burly Finch “Soft White” paper ruled with “Looseleaf Blue” ink. They’re bound together with shiny copper staples, and as always."
