SIZE MATTERS

Field Notes have made a bigger notebook!

They’ve been making Field Notes for many years now, and – with a few exceptions – they’ve always fit in your pocket. Customers often request bigger books with the same features as their regular Field Notes, and they’ve only obliged once, with the  “Arts and Sciences” limited edition. When those sold out, the requests kept coming, but they sought the right formula to fit a larger “Note Book” into thei permanent collection.

Field Notes popular “Pitch Black” memo book eventually gave them the inspiration they needed: they improved the original dot-graph version, added a ruled version, and further expanded the line to include larger “Note Book” versions.

These new Field Notes Pitch Black Note Books are available in 2-Packs with your choice of Dot-Graph or Ruled 60# Finch Opaque body paper. They’re bound with glossy black staples and sturdy 118# covers featuring new, Field Notes-exclusive black/kraft duplex paper from French Paper Co. Both feature a new Pitch Black logo discreetly printed on the back.

These 4-3/4″ × 7-1/2″ books allow more room for textual flim-flam, so we added some possibly-useful information regarding light and darkness to the inside covers of the Note Books, along with their usual Specifications and Practical Applications.

Pitch Black also is available in their traditional Memo Book size (3-1/2″ × 5-1/2″) with either Dot-Graph or Ruled pages. See those here.

Field Notes Pitch Black Note Books are in the permanent collection. They’ll always argue that “kraft is the new black,” but why not have both? You’ll find that they match every outfit, and Field Notes have never felt more at home on Main Street, Wall Street, and all the dark alleys in between.

Pitch Black has always been one of their best sellers. Aside from expanding the Pitch Black series to include additional sizes and interior page styles, they’ve also upgraded the look and feel of the books. Perhaps the biggest change is moving the series to custom-duplexed covers. Working with their pals at the French Paper Company in Niles, Michigan, they created a Field Notes-exclusive cover stock made up of “Blacktop” on the outside and fused it to their standby “Packing Brown Wrap” for the inside of the cover. It was a big undertaking, involving lots of steps and the final result is pretty special.
