I hate to be that guy who fawns all over a product, but dang it, Field Notes makes it so easy.
This this is beautiful:
From their website:
The “Shelterwood” edition features covers made from actual American Cherry wood, sliced ever-so-thin and bonded to a substrate of kraft paper for durability. We believe we’re the first notebook company to manufacture such a product at such a scale.
As with all of their quarterly releases, this includes a short video showcasing the production of it. It’s fascinating how they shave the wood off the log so thin:
Presumably the wood is extremely pliable, but as we discussed over at Field Nuts, this is not a back-pants-pocket notebook; it’s a front-shirt-pocket notebook for sure.
I feel like it was made especially for us wooden pencil fanatics. It’s a woodclinched notebook!
Once I get my hands on one, I’ll post some shots of the grain. (Why don’t I have the annual subscription again?)
The notebook is $9.95 for a three pack, available here. And once it’s gone, it’s gone!
