Baron Fig Composition Notebook Review

Baron Fig Composition Notebook Review

Baron Fig has released a new set, combining the Vanguard subscription and the Archer subscription, called the New School Set. If I'm doing my math correctly, this is the last of the Vanguard subscription releases and the third Archer. I'll be discussing the Archer in tomorrow's post; today is all about the Composition notebook.

Baron Fig Unfinish Review

Baron Fig Unfinish Review

Baron Fig is hitting the scene with another artist collaboration, this time with Khoi Vihn, Principal Designer at Adobe. The idea behind Unfinish is that on every spread or two, there is a "visual prompt", a picture, usually a photo, that is only a cut-out portion of the image and it asks you to finish it. The image is printed in non-photo blue and is fairly light. Otherwise, the pages are blank.

Field Notes Dime Novel Review

Field Notes Dime Novel Review

Inspired by 19th century publications of the same name, the Dime Novel edition from Field Notes is quite a departure from what they're known for, both in design and theme. This is the 36th quarterly limited release, and only the third to come in a size different from the standard. While I don't have much love for this edition, I find the story behind it very interesting and very Field Notes.

TBT: Field Notes Ambition

TBT: Field Notes Ambition

Looking back on the Ambition edition, I'm thinking there are a lot of loose singles out there. I know people love the planner and have bought packs just to get at that layout. And they'll use the others as daily carry books eventually, but the planner seems to be what buyers are looking for when Ambition editions are being requested in some of the online groups like Field Nuts.

TBT: Field Notes Drink Local

TBT: Field Notes Drink Local

For this installment of Throwback Thursday, I thought it would be fun to take a look at the Field Notes Drink Local set. I didn't have the blog back when these first came out, so I plan to pull out an old edition from time to time and give them a proper review. I used to work in the craft beer industry, so these are right up my alley.

Leuchtturm1917 Hardcover A5 Notebook Review

Leuchtturm1917 Hardcover A5 Notebook Review

I recently started Bullet Journaling. More on that in a future post, once I'm a few months in. The book I chose to do it in was the Leuchtturm1917. A good friend of mine uses these books and swears by them, as do many people within the stationery community. They get generally positive reviews. I've been sitting on this one for a while, not knowing quite what I wanted to use it for, so when I got interested in Bullet Journaling, I figured if Leuchtturm1917 was good enough for Ryder Carroll, it was good enough for me.
