New COLORS: Spring in Two Rivers

March 11th, 2015 by Bryan Bedell

FNC26_tworivers24“Two Rivers” is our newest COLORS limited edition, and it’s available now! It was an absolute joy to work with the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum and we’re thrilled to support their important mission with this edition. We’ve randomly mixed four French Paper Co. covers, three inks, and a variety of hand-set wood type designs to create more than a thousand different covers.

Learn more about “Two Rivers” here, including lots more photos and three videos about the edition, and be sure to check out Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum director Jim Moran’s blog post about the production of the books.

Only 25,000 packs were made, with $2 per pack going to support the museum. Order now, these won’t be available for long, and if you love American history, printing, and design as much as we do, please consider an additional donation to the museum when you check out.

It was only a matter of time: the math geeks at Reddit came across the “Free Clic Pen” offer in our Arts and Sciences edition. Arts and Sciences is still available, and the prize remains unclaimed.

A Long Term Relationship

August 13th, 2014 by Jim Coudal

We release seasonal editions four times each year. A very few of them, like the County Fair and Expedition Editions, become regular parts of our line, but for the vast majority, once they’re gone, they’re gone forever. You can purchase a year-long Colors Subscription and receive two of each release, plus lots of extra goodies and subscriber exclusives for just $97. Subscribers shipments always go out first too.

In a rare moment of organization and planning, we actually know what the next three editions will be. Winter is something people have been asking for, and Spring is, well, let’s just say it’s an really ambitious, and time-consuming, undertaking. You can start a subscription right now with the Unexposed Edition We’ll ship that out right away with extras and then you’ll be all set through next June or thereabouts.

Check this film, in which we try to use science to measure the value of a subscription.

Josh Ginter of The Newsprint wrote a thorough and well-illustrated review of our new Arts and Sciences edition (with bonus photos here).

“Despite the plethora of new, Arts and Sciences is a Field Notes book through and through.”

Thanks, Josh, glad you dig ‘em! Thanks also to Uncrate, Hypebeast, Well-Appointed Desk, Woodclinched, Unroyal Warrant, Chase McCoy, Acquire, Tools and Toys for all the shoutouts. 2-Packs of the 64-page larger-format “Arts and Sciences” are still available for a limited time, or subscribe to guarantee a year’s worth of our limited edition notebooks before they sell out.

Sort of a “Director’s Commentary” about all our Field Notes COLORS seasonal editions, just not as interesting. Bryan and I go through all the releases, by year, in a series of video recaps.
