  1. Because I'm somewhat obsessed with finding the ever-elusive perfect notebook, I recently purchased a two-pack of the "Byline" limited edition Field Notes reporter's notebook (see here for more information). I've had a couple of days to play with them so I thought I'd write up my first impressions. My highly informal testing consisted of taking notes during meetings at work and working out an outline and some initial thoughts for a paper I'm writing. I used a JetPens Chibi 2 fine point fountain pen loaded with J. Herbin Violette Pensee violet ink and a Rotring Skynn ballpoint loaded with a purp
  2. I'm a heavy notetaker, so I can burn through 6 Field Notes a month. I decided to save cash by making my own. With the help of my craft knife, printer, stapler, and Futura font in my computer, here's my personalized set of pocket notes. I use locally available Elias paper, which is very FP friendly and even shows off sheen. http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a2/isay77/Misc/443ace2194b9a1b9be8cdef027331860.jpg http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a2/isay77/Misc/273118eddb072c50e43485a5198b4355.jpg
  3. During my ongoing search for the ideal insert to fill the "fauxdori" travelers notebook I'm making, ForestChoice landed on the radar. Here are the final conclusions, for anyone considering new notebooks. ForestChoice Small Flex Notebook 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" 80 pages (lines, grid, or plain) 70gsm, soft cream color paper Acid free, FSC certified (FSC = Forest Stewardship Council) Pro column: Smooth, luxurious paper surface; a joy to write onBrings out shadingInk colors remain trueNo noticeable featheringStitched binding, taped outer spine (durable)Nice, stiff kraft cardstock coverSame price as Fi
  4. For some time now, I've been using leather notebook covers made by a UK-based craftsman, Fenner Benedict. Made from a variety of traditional materials, they are well-finished and of the highest quality. And of course, available easily in the UK. However, I decided that having already got the Explorer 2 which I use with Moleskine Cahiers and Field Notes, I thought I'd try the latest Explorer 3 in Midori Passport size. Good call! As can be seen from the photograph below, the two covers are virtually the same, apart from the size of course, and I chose the black leather for the Midori-sized o

  7. I've been doing some field training at work this week that's required me to take brief notes on paper while standing up in a small group of people. On the first morning I paused for a few moments to consider what would be the best pen to use. Some of my favorite pens have difficulty writing at strange angles, and I've found springy nibs to be troublesome on a hand-held notebook. My instinct was to fall back on a trusty Bic Grip rollerball, utterly bullet-proof, but I felt like something a bit different. On impulse I picked the Sheaffer Balance rollerball that was clipped inside my bag, unuse
  8. I mentioned in my Hobonichi unboxing post that I had found a way to carry around my 2015 Hobonichi with me and still “use” it even though it hasn’t started yet. This is that way. YellowPaperHouse (which I shall henceforth abbreviate as YPH) is a mother/daughter team that creates inserts for Midori-style notebooks and Filofaxes and sell them through Etsy. Everything is designed and made by them, so you are getting a totally original product. I found out about them I think from Instagram. Anyway, no affiliation, just to get that out of the way early on. As of right now they offer 26 d
  9. What companies make leather covers, made with thick full grain leather, for the Field Notes notebooks? Thanks.
  10. Just put this review up on my blog this afternoon, and figured I would post it here as well. :-) Even if you are not a pocket notebook user, I bet that pretty much everyone has heard of Field Notes and especially the Spring 2014 special edition, Shelterwood. Since I can’t really describe it better than they can, here’s the description from the website: The “Shelterwood” edition features covers made from actual American Cherry wood, sliced ever-so-thin and bonded to a substrate of kraft paper for durability. I really like that each cover is totally unique. The picture above is a s
