Move over, Moleskine; there’s a new notebook in town. Field Notes are simple, softcover, 48 page notebooks inspired by “practical, mostly-midwestern, American design.” It’s hard to go wrong with such a simple aesthetic, but what really wowed me were the coloured versions. Available seasonally, these limited edition books come with vibrant colour covers printed on rich, 80 lb. French Paper Company paper.
I really like the idea of turning something as simple as a notebook into a collectible. I really dislike the fact that because of this, I won’t be able to get my hands on the Butcher Orange version. Pre-releases are announced through the mailing list, so make sure you sign up if you want to get your hands on them. Of course, the standard brown cover is always available in blank, ruled, or graph paper.
