When I think of “Field Notes”, I instantly picture one of their pocket notebooks. Whether it’s their Kraft series or a limited edition version, it’s always a pocket notebook that I think of in the traditional sense of the word. I think of the 5.5″ x 3.5″ staple bound pocket notebooks that they commonly produce.
If you didn’t already know, Field Notes release a special new limited edition notebook every season. These limited edition versions are only printed in small batches and once sold out, are gone. The number of packets printed for each edition is listed on the website, as well as on the inside covers of the notebooks themselves. And let’s be honest, every time they do something new and amazing. They play with the quality of the paper, the colour of it, the cover material, perforation and many more things as they look to create new exciting products. It’s always exciting to see what they come up with every season. In Summer 2016, they launched the Byline edition – and like always, it was a surprise. The Byline edition is completely different to the other series in that it is a Reporter’s Notebook. A proper top spiral bound flip book sort of reporter’s notebook. Today’s post will be a look into the Byline edition.
