Since its beginnings, Field Notes has specialized in the no-frills notebook. Their logic? It doesn't matter how the outside looks just as long as what you write inside
the book is worthy.
But with their latest collection, the Chicago-based company gives us a chance to spruce the blank brown cover up a bit. Instead of the brand name, the Dry Transfer "_______" Edition lets you customize the name using the old-school graphic technique for a perfectly vintage-looking notebook.
So whether you label it "Spring Break 2011," "Running Miles," or just "Stuff," it doesn't matter. Just don't forget to fill it out.
