Now here’s a perfect holiday gift for a notebook addict, at least if they like Field Notes or similarly sized notebooks: I’ve always thought it would be nice to have some custom-made, perfectly-sized notebook storage. This box adds a nice extra: tabs that you can use to organize your various Field Notes volumes. Pretty […]

The passage below is from a post a few years old but I only just recently came across it. The writer has some great insights about notebooks and does an in-depth comparison of various models he’s used: The primary goal of a notebook is to get out of the way… to disappear. It does […]
This week’s addict emailed me to say “I like Field Notes. Moleskine too but I dont buy them much anymore. Quality has gone down. I use a hc pocket plain and strap 3 FN together with one of their rubber bands. 2 for writing and 1 for music and book lists etc.” He’s not kidding […]

I went through a phase in the late 1990s when my notebook obsession was relatively dormant, because my lust for handheld data receptacles of a certain size and shape had displaced itself onto the Palm Pilot and its various descendents. PDAs were my addiction then: I bought (and resold) about 15 different models over about […]
I’ve always depended on the kindness of strangers… well, maybe not really, but I do love it when exciting notebooks show up in my mailbox from people I’ve never met! A reader named June sent me two lovely items– first, a special edition Field Notes: This was the perfect gift, because as I’ve written here […]
I found this week’s addict via the Field Notes Blog, which points out that he seems to have collected pretty much every color they’ve ever produced: They do look great all lined up like that! See the original at Bellhaven’s Flickr photostream.
I know I should probably show a little more love to Field Notes brand notebooks. Lots of notebook fans seem to adore them, and it’s very admirable that they’re designed and made here in the good old US of A.
