Summer. Cars. The “License Plate Game.” Holiday Inn Swimming Pools. Pecan Logs. FIELD NOTES. It’s time to start planning your summer road trip and we can help make it great with our new ROAD TRIP KIT.
Above, we map a 1700-mile drive from the Field Notes Midwest HQ to the unbelievably beautiful Sedona, Arizona. Our route passes through Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona–six mighty fine states. Wouldn’t it be great to document the trip, state-by state, in a series of Field Notes “County Fair” notebooks? Here’s your chance! Even if you’re not hitting the road, you’ll find plenty of great uses for notebooks featuring your favorite six states.
Each ROAD TRIP KIT includes an 80-page Field Notes Steno notebook for pre-trip planning, ANY SIX individual county Fair State editions (you’ll get an email asking you to select six states after you place your order), six Field Notes Brand #2 Woodgrain pencils, and other goodies.
Grab the atlas from under your passenger seat, fill up the tank, and order today! The Field Notes Brand ROAD TRIP KIT is just $26.95 and it’s shipping right now.

For some of us, the items we choose to put in our pockets each day are selected with cool, scientific logic. Everything has a purpose and serves that purpose in a well-designed, compact and efficient way. Now, it goes without saying that a Field Notes Brand Memo Book is essential and for many people, some sort of wallet for cash, ID’s and cards is too. So, we worked with Iron & Resin in Ventura, California to create the Field Notes Brand “Everyday Carry” which organizes all your stuff in one beautiful package. Check out the newest addition to our line of leather goods, along with the “Pony Express” Leather Pouch and the Gentlemen’s Memo Book Cover too.

Halloween seems like as good a day as any to announce a new addition to the FIELD NOTES line-up, so please welcome “Pitch Black.”
You’ve been asking for an open-edition black notebook.
You’ve been asking for a open-edition dot-grid notebook.
Well, here are both, in one! “Pitch Black” features French 100-lb “Blacktop” covers with “Stealth Gray” text. Inside is our 50-lb Finch Opaque Smooth text paper, with a light-gray dot grid. It’s bound with shiny black staples and features an all-new list of Practical Applications. And best of all, it’s not a limited edition, we made plenty for everyone and we’ll keep it in stock until black goes out of style. (Like that’ll happen.)
Whatever they’re calling the “new black,” forget about it. Only black is black, and nothing’s blacker than black, and black goes with everything. This book will look great in a tux or a greasy leather jacket. It can record performance notes atop a grand piano, or take note of f-stops rubber banded to a thrift-store camera.
We’ve added it to our shop page, or you can order a 3-Pack or a couple 3-Packs, or as many as you’d like, right here:
Speaking of infinite darkness, the release of “Pitch Black” marks the retirement of our Red Blooded edition. We kept good ol’ Red in stock for a couple years and three printings and it was a favorite, but we figured it was time to move on. Maybe we’ll see “Red Blooded” make a comeback someday, but for now, (as of November 4, 2013) “Red Blooded” is sold out.
Just to be super-clear: “Pitch Black” is a new standard offering and not part of the limited-edition COLORS subscription series. Don’t confuse it with the Summer 2013 COLORS edition, “Night Sky,” which sold out months ago, or the Winter 2013 COLORS edition, which will be announced in November.

In a rare instance of a FIELD NOTES project finished ahead of schedule, our new 2014 “18-Monther” calendar is hot off the presses and available for purchase. Specs match the 2013 ediiton: 6×9″ heavy chipboard backing, tear-off months from November 2013 through April 2015, and “Real Big Days” on the back. We’re pretty sure our crack proofreading team didn’t include any fictional dates this year.

For those keeping track, we’ve just printed the 13th run of Field Notes kraft-cover notebooks. That means Mixed 3-Packs (graph/ruled/plain, shown above) are back in stock (available in the shop). As we run out of other 12th-printing 3-Packs, you’ll start seeing those in your online orders and in shops, too. What does this mean for you? Nothing, really, there’s been no change to our kraft books over the last several printings, we just wanted to share this milestone and let you know about the Mixed 3-Packs.

Our newest quarterly FIELD NOTES COLORS edition is available now! The “Expedition” edition is waterproof and damned near invincible (thanks to Yupo Synthetic Paper) and it’s very handsome to boot. Be sure to check out our 12 vigorous mostly-scientific video tests. We unveiled these new books to our email list yesterday (are you on our email list?), along with our new, equally-versatile FIELD NOTES Space Pens. Black Space Pens are already sold out, but we still have a few chrome pens left (and we’ll be getting more after the holidays).
In other news, Archival Boxes are back in stock, and we’ve got lots of great holiday gifts, including 2013 18-Month Calendars, leather goods, new black carpenter pencils, and more. It’s all available now in our online shop.

Subscribers to our email list got a sneak peek at three new products recently. Now everyone else can see them too. Introducing The Archival Wooden Box and two new FIELD NOTES leather goods; the “Pony Express” Leather Pouch and The Gentlemen’s Memo Book Cover. Lots more on these (and a couple more surprises too) very soon.

Our “18-Monther Calendar” is back for 2013, it’s in stock and ready to ship now! You get tear-off pages with November 2012 through April 2014 mounted on a new, even thicker, 6×9 backing with all-new “Real Big Days” listed on back. Visit the FIELD NOTES shop to order, and note that the new calendar has been added to “The Kit,” our one-click, low-price collection of Field Notes’ most popular items (pictured above).
Normally, we’d make a great big deal about something like this, but this “18-Monther” is just the tip of an iceberg of new products coming in the next few weeks. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list (top left corner of the site) to get first dibs on several brand-new items we’ll announce very soon. And that’s not even mentioning the Winter COLORS edition, in production now, that we’re ridiculously excited about.
