We got a call from the crew at Space, a sweet new co-working community in Chicago. They had an idea, and even more importantly, they had a vending machine. Tada.

If you watched our Ambition film, you’ll remember the scene at 1:20 where Shea tucks the package in a big box atop the handcart that Tyler’s pushing to the freight elevator. Turns out we just left it in there and mailed it, and it was returned today with three “Insufficient Address” labels. That’ll happen when you just make up an address. Sorry, USPS!

The Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room opened on December 5th in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. All of Starbucks small-batch Reserve coffees are roasted on-site. The 15,000-foot space in a historic 1920 building offers tours of the roasting process, a tasting room, and a shop selling Reserve coffees and limited-edition gifts commissioned just for the Roastery.
FIELD NOTES was happy to be involved, we’ve put together an all-new 2-pack of our larger 4 3/4″ x 7 1/2″ Note Books available exclusively at the Roastery. The covers are Graphic Wood Technology’s PureVeneer birch (real wood laminated to paper) and stamped with copper foil. Bound inside (with copper staples) are 64 orange dot-grid pages and coffee facts and figures. Notebooks and coffee go together like… now that you mention it, pretty much nothing goes together like notebooks and coffee, so if you’re in the Seattle area, you can pick up a pack right now!

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.

First, we mailed out our Fall 2014 edition to COLORS subscribers and then we revealed the edition to everybody else. Well, maybe revealed isn’t the right word. In any case, have a look, we think you’ll love it.

An old friend is back. We’re taking orders on these beefy, chip-board backed 18-month calendars. The new edition is 6″ x 9″ and will fit perfectly next to the bookshelf, or in the garage hanging above the air compressor, or in an office cubicle, or by that screen door at the summer place that makes such a racket when the breeze slams it shut. Just $11.95 each.

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.
