FIELD TRIP: Manhattan

FIELD NOTES at TekserveLast week I headed off to New York City to check out the National Stationery Show. The show is huge and takes two days to really walk the whole thing, which of course, led to terribly mangled feet. But what’s a little pain in the search for knowledge, right?

Since I was in town, I took some time and set off on a tour to meet some of our FIELD NOTES retailers and get some shots of our products in the wild, on store shelves. (You can follow along on the map above)

Jan van Dam: fan!

Field Notes in Sicily
Dutch writer/photographer Jan van Dam writes

FIELD NOTES easily match with fresh Sicilian seafood. I took this on our holiday in Palermo, Italy just two weeks ago.

Thanks, Jan! Aside from having the most Dutch name ever, you have excellent taste in memo books. And you’re making us very hungry.

Pretty Sketchy Layer Tennis

May 5th, 2009 by Bryan Bedell

FIELD NOTES made a couple appearances in Friday’s Layer Tennis match featuring FIELD NOTES creator Aaron Draplin vs. Chris Glass, as they celebrated May Day by conceptualizing a logo for a graphic design trade organization.

Speaking of conceptualization (and great Layer Tennis matches), Jason Santa Maria isn’t explicitly talking about FIELD NOTES in his latest dispatch, but we like the way he thinks, and especially the way he writes it down.
