While Moleskine’s idea of experimentation seems to consist of little more than striking new branding deals with popular entertainment franchises (a Peanuts notebook – don’t mind if I do), it’s plucky little cousin, Field Notes, continues to see just how much it can get away with while still remaining reasonably priced and true to its love of all things paper.
The latest addition to their “Colors” series – the “Shelterwood Edition” – features covers that are actually made of American cherry wood veneers.
Here are a few details about the new series direct from the mama sheet:
- Thanks to the texture of the wood itself, no two notebooks look exactly alike.
- All covers were made from cherry trees in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.
- The covers themselves are uncoated, featuring text printed with a triple hit of “Ghostflower White,” which allows some of the texture of the wood to show through.
- Inside covers are mossy green text on kraft paper.
- Inside pages are “Soft White” 70 lb. Text.
A 3-pack of Shelterwood notebooks will set you back $9.95, and will probably sell out fast. Annual subscriptions to the “Colors” editions are also available for $97, which net you one 3-pack of their latest creation every quarter.
