Description

I'm not writing it down to remember later, I'm writing it down to remember it now!"

Inspired by the vanishing subgenre of agricultural memo books, ornate pocket ledgers and the simple, unassuming beauty of a well-crafted grocery list, the Draplin Design Company of Portland, Oregon in conjunction with Coudal Partners of Chicago, Illinois bring you “FIELD NOTES” in hopes of offering, “An honest memo book, worth fillin’ up with good information!” You might have heard of iconic notebook brand Field Notes and for good reason. There are lots of other notebook options, but we always end up coming back to Field Notes because of their blend of convenience, style and durability.




Field Notes: Expedition Edition



To be frank, we never quite understood the level of devotion and detail that went into the making of each Field Notes series, nor could we quite comprehend the phenomenon that's taken the notebook industry by storm in a short period of 5 years - that is until we met the Expedition Edition of Field Notes. Having discovered this edition, we could think of no better way to introduce the Field Notes brand to our community.

Having explored a wide variety of papers, colors, and printing techniques, for the first time Field Notes has actually expanded the basic utility of their notebooks. Let's make no doubt about that - Field Notes, as their name suggests, are built for use in the great outdoors. To prove it, watch this short clip that showcases just 1 of the 12 properties this notebook withstands - TEST 1: WATERPROOF.


Aesthetically, you’ll find an all-new design with plenty to like: 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 our 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. Months of development and testing were required to get these books just right, and here are some tips about pens and pencils to use with these books.

We could go on and on about our new books’ durability and incredible properties (especially in concert with the new FN-19 Space Pen), but we'll let you discover them for yourself in this series of 12 (reasonably) scientific tests:

TEST 1: WATERPROOF
TEST 2: VISIBILITY
TEST 3: WIND RESISTANCE
TEST 4: BALLISTICS
TEST 5: VACUUM
TEST 6: TENSILE STRENGTH
TEST 7: COMPRESSION
TEST 8: ACID RESISTANCE
TEST 9: FLAME RESISTANCE
TEST 10: EXTREME TEMPERATURE
TEST 11: ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES
TEST 12: ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE


NEW: Cherry Graph Edition (NOW SOLD OUT!)




Actual American Cherry wood covers, sliced ever-so-thin and bonded to a substrate of kraft paper for durability.

The newest edition to our regular line-up, “Cherry Graph” features real cherry wood covers, like our sold-out Spring 2014 Shelterwood Edition (video below), but now with black text, filled with 48 pages of our tried-and true Finch Opaque Smooth 50#T with 48 pages of 3/16” graph paper inside.


The Original 3 Pack

This hunt could not be complete without the original 48-page memo books, available in four variations, or a mixed 3-Pack.
Each book measures 3-1/2” wide by 5-1/2” tall and is bound with a rugged three-staple saddle-stitch process.






At checkout, select from:

“GRAPH PAPER” 3/16” (5mm) graph paper.

“RULED PAPER” 1/4” (6.5mm) ruled paper. For good, crisp lines.

“PLAIN PAPER” FN-03 Free wheelin’ plain paper. For doodling away.

“MIXED PAPER” One of each. Plain, ruled and graph paper.
