Sometimes the simplest idea, done right, can be the best idea. That is the case for Field Notes, a stationary...no that's too broad...notepad and writing implement company out of Portland OR and Chicago. That's right.

With whimsical special editions like this year's County Fair Series available in a 50 state pack, or the Dry Transfer _________ Edition where the front is left blank and you can put your own title on it, or the American Trademan Edition with graph paper and a carpenter pencil.
