FIELD NOTES Pitch Black 2Packs Large
Is it weird that it took us so long to make a bigger notebook?
We’ve been making Field Notes for ten years now and — with a few exceptions — they’ve always fit in your pocket. Customers often request larger books with the same features as our regular Field Notes, and we’ve only obliged once, with the “Arts and Sciences” limited edition. When those sold out, the requests kept coming, but we sought the right formula to fit a larger “Note Book” into our permanent collection.
Our popular “Pitch Black” Memo Book eventually gave us the inspiration we needed: we improved the original dot-graph version, added a ruled version, and further expanded the line to include larger “Note Book” versions.
These new Field Notes Pitch Black Notebooks are available in 2-Packs with your choice of Dot-Graph or Ruled 60# Finch Opaque body paper. They’re bound with glossy black staples and sturdy 118# covers featuring new, Field Notes-exclusive black/kraft duplex paper from French Paper Co. (see film below). Both feature a new Pitch Black logo discreetly printed on the back.
These 4-3/4" × 7-1/2" books allow more room for textual flim-flam, so we added some possibly-useful information regarding light and darkness to the inside covers of the notebooks, along with our usual Specifications and Practical Applications.
Pitch Black also is available in our traditional Memo Book size (3-1/2" × 5-1/2") with either Dot-Graph or Ruled pages.
We’re excited to finally offer larger Field Notes in our permanent collection. We’ll always argue that “kraft is the new black,” but why not have both? You’ll find that they match every outfit, and Field Notes have never felt more at home on Main Street, Wall Street, and all the dark alleys in between.
