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.

As our mailing list learned first, the Summer 2014 COLORS edition is now available! Arts and Sciences features new, bigger FIELD NOTES books, with more pages. Each pack contains one “Arts” book with a wine-colored cover and alternating blank and ruled pages, and one “Sciences” book with a slate-colored cover and alternating blank and “engineer’s graph” pages. Both feature handy info regarding their particular fields of study. Find out more and order a 2-Pack or start your subscription now! It’s a limited edition and once they’re gone, they’re gone.

With the baseball season on the verge of the All-Star break, it seems a good time to remind fathers, sons, wives and daughters about Kevin Guilfoile’s splendid memoir about his Dad, Roberto Clemente and a mysterious bat. A Drive into the Gap, from Field Notes Books is a short, delightful, touching story that deserves a place on any ball fan’s shelf. Check out an excerpt and a short film, and then pick up a copy or two.

We received the news from our dear friends over at The Paperie in the UK that they are winding down operations in anticipation of retirement. While we are happy for them to enjoy leisurely days going forward, we will certainly miss them as a retailer of our notebooks. Nigel and his crew have been staunch supporters of Field Notes from all the way back to our first year. We have very much appreciated that support and value the vendor/retailer relationship that seemed more like a friendship than business. So good luck wishes to our friends in their retirement! (Oh, and they are having a closing-down sale so check out the great prices!)

“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.

FIELD NOTES are invited to plenty of weddings; as wedding party gifts, guest favors, guestbooks, and often filled with vows, speeches, and prayers on the big day. But as @jacobwelchans tweeted recently, sometimes they sneak in, uninvited…
“I used my FIELD NOTES as a contact directory and pretty much overall wedding planner. Both of my brothers [Lucas and Eron, pictured] wrote the notes for their speeches in theirs. Our photographer saw me checking my notebook before the wedding and asked about it, and then asked if anyone else in my party had them, and both of my brothers pulled theirs out. My mom had hers too but wasn’t there at the time. My entire family (including my new wife) is all big fans of your company and product. I LOVE the shelterwood pack I recently purchased. My older brother carries the leather wallet. My wife used your steno pad for her wedding notes.”
Congratulations, Jake and Sylvia! Write it down now, and remember it forever!

Folks on The List get FIELD NOTES release information before everyone else. For example, our mailing list just got first dibs on the new Summer COLORS limited edition. Sign up and then click on the link on the “THANK YOU” page and see what all these films are about.
Also, we won’t make an offer on our products anywhere that we don’t also make to The List and we’ll never, ever share your email address with anyone. Generally speaking you’ll receive four mails each year announcing the seasonal editions, plus just a few more about product introductions or special offers. We know you’re busy and it’s hard to keep a clean inbox, so we’ll only send when we have something important to say.
