Field Notes Expedition Edition 3-Pack
The Expedition Edition marks the start of the fifth year of FIELD NOTES COLORS. In this time, they’ve explored a wide variety of papers, colors, and printing techniques, but with this new “EXPEDITION” Edition, for the first time, they’ve actually expanded the basic utility of their notebooks.
Aesthetically, you’ll find an all-new design with plenty to like: a hi-visibility “Antarctic Survey Orange” front cover and “Polar Night Black” back cover, with a subtle varnish effect featuring a topographic map of Antarctica. The body pages feature the popular ‘dot grid’ graph paper, printed in light gray.
But the real innovation here is the paper. It’s maybe not even fair to call it paper. The whole book is printed on Yupo Synthetic paper, an amazing water- and tear-proof paper extruded from polypropylene pellets in Chesapeake, Virginia.
Months of development and testing were required to get these books just right.
The majority of customers may not test the limits of these books, but the map of Antarctica is neither hyperbole nor coincidence. The “EXPEDITION” Edition accompanied explorer Ben Saunders as he and his team retraced Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated journey to the South Pole and back, on foot and unsupported.
Note: Synthetic paper is nonporous and doesn’t absorb ink like most conventional papers. Here are some tips about pens and pencils to use with these books.
