Field Notes Black Ice Memo Book - 3 pack
Inspired by the vanishing subgenre of agricultural memo books, ornate pocket ledgers, and the simple, unassuming beauty of a well-crafted grocery list, the Draplin Design Co., Portland, Ore. -- in conjunction with Coudal Partners, Chicago, Ill. -- brings you "Field Notes" in hopes of offering "An honest memo book worth fillin' up with good information."
If you follow Field Notes' exploits, you know that they love to explore materials, inks, printing processes and other special effects with their Quarterly Editions. At first glance, you’ll see they've taken foil stamping to an extreme. They've stamped Sappi’s premium McCoy 100# cover stock with a silvery-black metallic foil, covering the whole book, everything but the spine. That portion features a stripe of vibrant orange ink with a soft-touch varnish. The cover text is embossed, giving the whole book a retro-futuristic machine feel.
But the biggest difference between Black Ice and our usual Field Notes is a bit less obvious if you don’t look closely. This is our first pocket memo book without staples! The books are PUR-bound, using an advanced polyurethane adhesive that’s both stronger and more flexible than regular perfect binding.
