Gabriel Benderski writes, “I would like to share with you a project that I recently finished where I used my “Pitch Black” Field Notes as my main tool. I challenged myself to create many lowercase “a”s with a square counter shape on a 3x3 grid. Result: 245.” Check Gabriel’s A+ video too. BTW, “Pitch Black” will be back in stock very soon.
All Quiet on the Midwestern Front
The period between the Spring and Summer Quarterly Limited Editions is generally fairly uneventful, except of course, when it isn’t. Behind the scenes, there’s a mountain of stuff in the works. We have five different products in production currently, in a variety of locations. That means lots of press checks, film/photo shoots, copywriting, coding and deadlines. All will be revealed pretty soon. Let’s just say that right now is a very good time to start a year-long subscription with the “Utility” Edition. A very good time.
Also, the shop in Chicago is open weekdays from 9 to 5 and we’re planning some fun events at HQ. For example, on Thursday, April 27th we’re hosting FNZN, Field Notes Zine Night. Come on by for art, drinks and fun. Also, go directly to your calendar right now and circle Saturday, May 6th, and make a note that you are going to be busy that day. Trust us.
In case you’re curious, we’re selling approximately four Engineer Graph 3-Packs of the “Utility” Edition for every three we sell with Ledger-styled innards. We didn’t really have any idea which would be more popular. At first, graph was way ahead, but ledger has been steadily catching up since them.
“Rice won a contest the city was holding for a flag design — a contest he just happened to have written the rules for — and the City Council officially made it the municipal flag on April 4, 1917. A third star and a fourth were added later.”
We’ve added quite a few new retailers recently, in lots of places. Welcome to the iconic Corner Drug which has been serving Woodland, California since 1897. Also Papier & Stift, which is located on Butzbacher Germany’s beautiful Market Square, Magforce Korea, The Mint Store in Russia and then back to California for Kuarto, an eclectic shop in Long Beach.
If there’s a shop in your neighborhood that should be carrying Field Notes Brand products, drop us a line about it. If we get in, we’ll send you some presents.
