Spring 2014 Colors Edition
Specs From Field Notes:
“The covers are left uncoated with text printed in a triple-hit of “Ghostflower White” which remains slightly opaque, the wood texture showing through like a faded whitewashed fence. Inside covers are mossy green text on kraft paper. The guts of the books are Finch Fine “Soft White” 70# text stock, the same beefy stock you loved in our “America the Beautiful” Edition. They’re ruled in “Maidenhair Green,” and bound together with three sturdy gold staples.”

So these look really awesome. The covers are made of a very thin wood veneer that’s bonded to kraft paper. The paper inside is a 70#T “soft white” that’s noticeably thicker (and more fountain pen friendly) than their standard 50#T paper. The ruling is a nice green color, and it’s in the form of lines. It’s been a while since I’ve used a lined Field Notes, and I can say that I did miss it. Make sure to check out the handwritten review scans for the fronts and backs of all of the pages I used for the review. I tried something new this time and used my Doxie Flip to make a PDF of the review. Please let me know what you think!
One thing I noticed is that the covers do have a hard time staying closed on their own. I think I’m going to be using my Field Notes General Purpose Band of Rubber to help keep this one closed. Other than the fact that this is the most fountain pen friendly FN I’ve used, I don’t think I have much else so say about this awesome seasonal release. Act fast, because they tend to sell out. Good thing I ordered two packs, because these are going to see some serious use.
