Our 23rd Quarterly Edition introduces a brand-new, larger Field Notes format for Summer 2014. We’ve created a 2-Pack of 7½" by 4¾" memo books big enough to accommodate ideas from both sides of your brain. Each book features sturdy Mohawk Loop 110-lb covers with silver ink and debossed logos, with of Finch Opaque 50-lb text paper inside.
The Arts memo book is designated for creative musings, featuring a wine-colored cover containing a wealth of handy information for writers and fine artists. Its 64 interior pages are quarter-inch ruled in “Academy Gray” for prose and poetry on the right-hand (“recto”) side, and blank on the left-hand (“verso”) side for sketches, scribbles, and sentence diagrams.
Sciences sports a dark slate gray cover loaded with the formulas, theories, and ideas you need to get you through your day. The recto pages feature an all-new “Engineer’s Graph” subdivided into one-inch, half-inch, and tenth-inch squares in “Academy Gray.” As with Arts, the “verso” side of the sheet is blank, awaiting your diagrams, calculations, and observations.
Our series of teaser films examines what happens when art meets science and vice-versa. If you went to liberal-arts college, it will all probably seem pretty familiar.
