Field Notes Brand wanted to produce something bright and warm for this edition, and to do that they focused on the papers. It all started when they found a batch of Mohawk Via Vellum 80# “Yellow,” a stock they have always loved but never found the right project for, until now. In their estimation, the finish and structure of this paper was absolutely made for embossing and debossing. While they have experimented with that in the past, they have really pushed the limits here.
The covers are heavily debossed all over, with three original graphic patterns based on flowers are among the very first to appear in the North American Spring each year: the Ghost Flower (Mohave confertiflora) in the Southwest, Quaker Ladies (Houstonian caerulea) in the East, and Contra Costa Goldfields (Lasthenia conjugens) in the San Francisco Bay area. Then the covers were hot stamped with three luscious, reflective Kurz Luxor Foils.
A first for Field Notes Brand, the dot-graph insides are made from Strathmore’s Cambric 70# text, a truly superb paper. The subtle, linen-like texture gives it a ton of character and they believe writers and artists are really going to love it.
