“FNC-17″ marks the start of the fifth year of FIELD NOTES COLORS. In that time, the Field Notes team explored a wide variety of papers, colors, and printing techniques, but with this new “EXPEDITION” edition, for the first time, Field Notes expanded the basic utility of 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 our 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.
