Field Notes - 'Matching Metals' - 3-Pack Memo Books
This Field Notes Quarterly limited edition gets its name from the position of the elements copper, silver, and gold in the Periodic Table. “Group Eleven” features three standard Dot-Graph Memo Books. But aside from the size, there’s not much standard about them.
Stylish and refined, each book in the 3-Pack represents one of the three precious metals and features a cover stamped in metallic hot-foil with matched staples, ink, and (for only the second time ever*) gilded page edges. The covers are a 120#C duplexed stock from Neenah, combining “Solar White” on the outside and “Epic Black” inside. Body pages are 70#T Finch Opaque with a dot-grid in matching metallic ink.
“Group Eleven**” plays the shimmering colors of these three “native metals” off of the elegant white covers in a way that feels rich without being ostentatious. They’re tastefully fit for Winter, especially for list-making and gift giving.
** Group Eleven includes a fourth element: roentgenium. Its most stable isotope, roentgenium-281, is rarely synthesized and it decays via spontaneous fission in about 26 seconds, which created insurmountable production hassles for a mid-sized stationery manufacturer. Our apologies
