Even casual Field Notes fans are surely familiar with our COLORS limited-edition notebooks and our subscription service.

The videos below are split into four parts, by year:

In response to the heart-tugging film Steve and Bryan had made a few months back, using the Red Blooded edition as a Valentine, Aaron wanted to show the grittier, seedy underbelly side of things, with help from the “anything but cute” Portland-based heavy metal band Red Fang and their tour manager Coyle.

Our thirteenth FIELD NOTES COLORS release, for Winter 2011, is called “The Northerly Edition,” and as always, we’re trying a few new ideas. “Northerlies” feature our first-ever coated cover, and it couldn’t be glossier: cast-coated, snow-white Mohawk/Smart Kromekote, milled and finished in Cohoes, New York. The covers feature “Icy Silver” type with an embossed FIELD NOTES logomark.
Inside, you’ll find our usual Finch paper, with a twist: white graph lines on a light, cold, blue-gray background. Each 3-Pack is belly-banded in silver. It’s a new, modern feel for us, and when we say “modern,” we mean 1954 modern. You know, the FUTURE.

Our 12th FIELD NOTES COLORS edition was designed as a companion for the dedicated and vigilant men and women who have served as the “eyes of the forest” for the last 100 years. “FIRE SPOTTER” was printed by hand on a vintage Miehle vertical press at Flywheel Letterpress (Freeport, Ill.) on “Electric Red” Construction cover stock from the French Paper Co. (Niles, Mich.). The interior pages are a brand-new light-gray “Dot Grid” pattern.
We’ve teamed up with Tattly (Brooklyn, N.Y.) to include an “ALWAYS WATCHING” temporary tattoo with each 3-Pack of “FIRE SPOTTERS,” so you can show that you’re keeping an eye on things.
Our recent visit to the Mountain Fire Lookout Tower in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest in Wisconsin (Background here) taught us that autumn looks pretty incredible from 93 feet up:
Even if you’re not monitoring wildfires from a cabin in the sky, you’ll find plenty of uses for these handsome made-in-the-U.S.A. “Dot-Grid” notebooks.

We had some fun with our County Fair edition, making the good ol’ U. S. of A. on the studio floor. Why don’t you have some fun with them too? Available in 3-Packs or Box Sets or customize your own Road Trip Kit.

We’ve been listening. Devoted Field Notes fans have asked for a larger notebook, something to keep on their desks to go along with our pocket-sized and portable originals. So today we’re announcing the new Field Notes Brand STENO BOOK.
THE STENO is 6″ by 9″ with a black, Double-O Wiring spiral binding at the top, so it lies flat, open or closed. The cover is a beefy 60 pt. “Super Duty Chipboard” from Newark Paperboard Mills, and there are 80 pages of Gregg-Ruled, Finch Paper “Opaque Smooth” 70# text paper inside. We’ve been testing them here and frankly, we wonder how we ever got on without them. They’re the perfect form to keep open on your desk at all times.

Sort of like “How It’s Made,” but with much cooler music. Our new film is about about the making of the Fall COLORS edition, “Raven’s Wing.”
