Our 24th Quarterly Edition, introduces brand-new, limited-edition Field Notes memo books for the fall of 2014. We generally take this chance to describe the papers, materials, and process in excruciating detail, but this time, we’ll let the film explain it all:
Here’s what we tell you: each Unexposed pack features three 5½" x 3½" 48-page memo books in an opaque black sleeve. The interior paper features our reticle-graph, last seen in the Night Sky edition from Summer 2013.
We won’t ruin the surprise by giving away any more than that, except to say that each pack contains three of the six memo books that make up this edition. So, there are 20 different possible combinations. Which combination you receive is left up to chance. You don’t know what you’ll get, and neither do we! But we’re confident you’ll enjoy them.
