Hand Wash Only Please

GQ’s popular “10 Essentials” feature this month is by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, the guys behind Instagram. Mike accidentally tested the durability of our memo books and took a lovely photo to prove it. Thanks for that.

Back to the Soil

July 10th, 2012 by Bryan Bedell

Our latest offering, the “National Crop” Edition, returns to FIELD NOTES’ agricultural roots with six notebooks in a custom-made box with a big poster and a embroidered patch for your overalls. It’s available by the box, while they last, or as part of a FIELD NOTES COLORS subscription.

You’ll also want to watch our new film “FROM SEED” featuring Aaron Draplin cheerfully ramblin’ on about his huge collection of vintage notebooks that inspired FIELD NOTES.

If all that isn’t enough to get you way-damn-excited about pocket notebooks, we finally got serious and posted a huge-ass gallery featuring more than 300 books from Aaron’s collection.

Apologies if we’re belaboring the point, but “National Crop” sales are going strong, and when they’re gone, they’re gone, stock up while you can!

Check out the new video for “Gypsy” by Kim Boekbinder, a Canadian New Yorker who has worked with Amanda Palmer and Bauhaus’ David J.

Yep, that’s a County Fair “yellowhammer” in there, can’t quite make out the state. Thanks to Kim and director John Leavitt for sneaking that in there, we appreciate it!
