We can hardly believe it but Field Notes is celebrating the release of it’s 50th quarterly edition this month! Though 50 is traditionally the “golden anniversary,” Field notes opted instead for bright red covers with silver ink, flyleaf colors reminiscent of past editions, and a special die cut.
For our 50th edition we wanted to go back to basics, but as usual we couldn’t leave well enough alone,” said Jim Coudal, cofounder of Field Notes. “So while it looks simple, we’ve incorporated little nods to techniques and materials we’ve featured in the past, and then we created the ‘Subscriber Anniversary Desk Ledger’ to go along with the 3-Packs, and that, I think, is the most complicated, and most fun, thing that we’ve ever made.
Each three-pack of notebooks is filled with silver graph grid paper (48 pages per notebook).
There’s also a bonus for annual Field Notes subscribers (including brand new ones): a retrospective book, the “Anniversary Desk Ledger,” filled with historical details, trivia and wisecracks.
One of the things we love most about the Field Notes editions is the video that they put together for each edition, and this “behind the scenes of a short video” is no exception:
Congratulations to Field Notes – here’s to another 50!
