Field Notes Autumn Trilogy Review

Field Notes Autumn Trilogy Review

It seems like Field Notes loves fall as much as I do, because their most recent release, the Autumn Trilogy, celebrates the season beautifully. It's a throwback to earlier editions like Mackinaw Autumn, and Shenandoah, with a little Grass Stain Green-style embossing thrown in.

Field Notes 2017 Recap

Field Notes 2017 Recap

At first glance, it seemed to me that Field Notes had a slow year, but after I looked back, it was actually a lot busier than I had initially thought. It's likely that I just didn't succumb to as much FOMO as I did in years past, and I skipped a few releases, mainly the simple collaborations. There was also a little bit of drama with them this year, first with the quality control of some of the early 2017 items, then with the tone-deaf collaboration with Abercrombie & Fitch towards the latter part of the year. First, I'll dig into the Quarterly releases, then we'll talk about the other stuff.

Just in time for the holidays, Field Notes has released their winter limited edition set, Resolution.

A couple things about this set confuse me a bit, but it's not an overall dud.

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.
