3 Field Notes Notebooks, Fall 2019 Limited Edition, 3-1/2" x 5-1/2", Autumn Trilogy
A Limited Edition celebrating the warm colors of fall foliage
Pack of 3 Field Notes pocket sized memo books with ruled pages.
Field Notes selected three beautiful cover papers from Mohawk’s Via line: “Warm Red,” “Safety Yellow,” and “Scarlet,” all with a vellum finish. These roughly approximate the Fall leaf colors of the North American Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum), the American Elm (Ulmus americana), and the Scarlet Oak (Quercus coccinea).
Using photographs for reference, Field Notes carefully traced the shape, contours and vein patterns of each leaf into a scaleable vector file, then created a “lock-up” of each cover layout with the Field Notes logo and cover text. A sculptor converted the flat vector files into a three-dimensional computer model for embossing and debossing, and to simulate how the covers would look under various lighting conditions before the expensive and time-consuming process of physical diemaking began so that each cover could be stamped.
Ruled body pages are printed on Finch Fine 70#T “Soft White” in gray with double top rule matched to the cover colors. Finally the books were bound with gold staples.
The final result is wonderfully subtle at first glance, but a close look reveals a deeper complexity. That sounds like a pretty over-the-top way to describe pocket memo books, but we bet you’ll agree when they’re in your hands.
