Field Notes Black Ice Notebook
Field Notes Black Ice Notebook is here. This is Field Notes 33rd Quarterly Edition for Winter 2016 If you Field Notes, you know that they love to explore materials, inks, printing processes and other special effects. At first glance, you’ll see they have taken foil stamping to an extreme. They stamped Sappi’s premium McCoy 100# cover stock with a silvery-black metallic foil, covering the whole book, everything but the spine. That portion features a stripe of vibrant orange ink with a soft-touch varnish. The cover text is embossed, giving the whole book a retro-futuristic machine feel.
The biggest difference between Black Ice and the usual Field Notes is a bit less obvious if you don’t look closely. This is their first pocket memo book without staples! The books are PUR-bound, using an advanced polyurethane adhesive that’s both stronger and more flexible than regular perfect binding.
Inside, you’ll find “Bright White” Finch Fine Smooth 70# text paper, a brighter-white version of the paper. It’s ruled in “Frost Gray” with a double-rule of “DDC Orange” up top.
This special notebook turned out to be a very complicated printing process for Field Notes, involving a lot of testing, lots of steps, many press checks and some serious challenges for their printers. In the end, they came through and really nailed it. These books look simply amazing!
