For our 16th seasonal limited-edition release we’ve created an old-fashioned ledger book with modern practicality in celebration of the door-to-door salesmen who moved product and kept the American economy humming throughout the last century. For the fall of 2012, we present THE TRAVELING SALESMAN EDITION.
Somehow, during the last fifty years, the noble traveling salesman became a “road warrior” and at Field Notes, we think that we’re all a little poorer because of it. In a perfect world, we would have stuck a perfectly buffed wingtip in your front door while extolling the virtues of this one-of-a-kind opportunity but alas, this post will have to do.
The covers of this edition are a lovely chocolate brown from The French Paper Company printed with a metallic gold ink and the Field Notes logomark is embossed making for a distinguished and timeless presentation. The interior pages are “Eye-Ease” green and are ruled, ledger style, in green and red providing the perfect format for tracking miles, sales, costs, inventories and lists of all kinds. Each 3-Pack is belly-banded in green and shrink-wrapped and each comes with an official button (from Busy Beaver in Chicago) that shows the world you are “Certified and Trained” as an “Authorized Representative” of Field Notes Brand Co. of America.
Subscribe to FIELD NOTES COLORS and get two “TRAVELING SALESMAN” edition 3-Packs and two kraft-cover FIELD NOTES 3-Packs (one Graph, one Mixed) immediately. Over the next year, you’ll get three more quarterly mailings featuring a pair of FIELD NOTES COLORS limited-edition 3-Packs. That adds up to 30 memo books, including “doubles” of each COLORS edition: one to use and one to hoard away for posterity. 400 subscriptions are available for just $97 each which includes all our usual goodies.
COLORS subscriptions starting with our last three limited editions, the NORTHERLY EDITION, the NATIONAL CROP EDITION, and the DAY GAME EDITION all sold out quickly. And OMG guys, you are going to have to have the winter edition, it’s going to be positively heroic.
